Black Tank Flush Hose

So I am getting all my new accessories together and was wondering, do you guys usually trust the RV/State Park has a black tank flush hose on hand, or do you bring your own? What length would I be safe bringing if I needed to bring my own? Are there any small flexible hoses that are worth while?

It's a crap shoot. I've been to parks with a regular hose and I have been to others with a nozzle tip with no threads (i think they do that on purpose to keep people from tying up the dump station while rinsing tanks). I keep a cheap garden hose on board in case I need it.

I carry a 25' utility hose. I hardly ever use it at a dump station because I am leery of contamination from just laying on the ground.

If the dump station hose is not long enough or busted, I just dump and forgo the rinse routine. Add 4-5 gallons of water to the tank with a bucket and let it slosh around until the next time.
