Dump only?

Brand new to RVing .... Bought used 1989 mini-winnie and have used it twice to go to music camp-outs (I volunteer medically). I have some gray water and black water that I would like to dump. Are there places that one can go just to dump, or do I need to pay an overnight fee at a local park? Currently in the san francisco bay area. Thanks for any help. I have lots more questions and will post individually with appropriate titles.

Do you have a Flying J or truck stop. Also check with your local city waste disposal or water treatment location. We have both here when I need to dump.

Good Luck

I live North of San Francisco, a few gas stations up here have a dump station. They charge a small fee, some are free if you purchase fuel.

I don’t like the fact that my chances of survival seem to be linked to the common sense of others.

There is numerous places you can go depending on where you are
State parks rest area on some major highways. There are also some campgrounds that let you dump free.
Call around

Generally the event you will be at is going to be at a fairground.. And they will have at least one dump.

Your city (if you live in a city) may have a dump. Mine did but nobody knows where to find it (No comment, typical government operation, I should know, I'm a retired government employee)

As someone said, Several Gas stations, some charge a fee.

The web page linked to is a good one but the advice is call ahead to see if someone knows where to find the thing.

Home is where I park it!
