Okay, the definition I go by is staying in a public land area with no designated sites and no or nearly no facilities (LTVA's have dump/water). A campground with no hookups is dry camping in my books. Parking lots are neither.

Well we do have those. They are called canoe routes . On rivers lakes or the ocean.. None are accessible by RV.

They are largely free.

Its just one more difference between East and West. East you have trees to fit around, less public land, more water ( such that municipal sewage and water systems are uncommon around here) and lots are large as the utilities are largely self contained..

When dry camping or boondocking do you use your toilet? Then do you travel with your bkack water tank until you are somewhere to empty? I thought you were only supposed to travel with it empty.

Wouldn't be much point in having the tank if you had to travel with it empty

Yes, you use the sink/toilet/shower and dump the tanks at your earliest convenience. Just remember you have extra weight, that will also alter the hitch weight one way or the other depending on tank location, when you are driving.

Of course. I don't know why one would be required to drive with it empty presuming you have allowed for the weight. Getting to a dry camping spot one brings water. Its just used water

Empty or full

As your fresh water empties your gray & black fill - so it almost equals out as far as the weight - Les
