Fire away.
Get yourself one of the sewer caps with a male hose fitting and when your gray gets full just attach a section of garden hose that will reach a patch of ground that will take the water and dump some of the water. No need to move to the dump station. Keep that hose specifically for that purpose. Spray paint the end of the hose gray so you don't accidentally use it for anything else. Just make sure you're respectful of the neighbors and don't flood the area. I often dump 10 or so gallons in the evening or even use the water to douse my campfire. If you're dry camping you can use the gray water to flush your toilet...double duty.
Many camp grounds without sewer hookup have "dish water dump" receptacles located within 2 or 3 sites of each other.
There's plenty of ways to get rid of the gray water without breaking camp and schlepping down to the dump station...
The key is moderation and respect for fellow campers.
