I was at a MN state park last year that had a series of hose bibs up the center of the island. The park office when we checked in told us it was fine to connect and leave connected. We did not, but a number of people where hooked up to them. I would recommend checking in with the park.

I was actually given a water splitter (Which I had to sign for) at one camp site. They was using one water tap for two trailers. I had to disconnect the neighbor's hose to get my hose in the mix. He left before I did and I wasn't at the camp site when they left but found them gone when we got back. Our signed for splitter was still there an hooked up... We don't drink out of our fresh water tank - just for dishes and showers so no big deal for us.

I guess the main advantage for us would be that my wife and I wouldn't wake up the kids when we come to bed (our pump is loud enough to wake the dead). Also better water pressure for showers, wouldn't have to dump excess water out of the tanks before leaving, wouldn't have to worry about running out of water and potentially damaging the pump, etc.

THUS FAR, I HAVE NOT CAMPED IN A PARK WITHOUT WATER AT EACH SITE. IN OKLA, THE STATE PARKS I'VE VISITED HAVE WATER AT EACH SITE. THAT IS NOT THE CASE FOR "CORP OF ENGINEER" FACILITIES IN OKLA. I WAS AT ONE SUCH CORP PARK WHERE WATER WAS CENTRALLY LOCATED. EACH SPIGOT LOOKED LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE. "Y's" ATTACHED TO "Y's" AND HOSES GOING ALL DIRECTIONS. WE HAVE NEVER CAMPED THERE, JUST WAS CHECKING IT OUT.

We camp exclusively in Michigan State campgrounds. All of them I've been to have low water pressure at the spigots throughout the campground, a nozzle that doesn't allow for a hose to be attached, and lest anybody try to get creative, a sign making it clear that connecting to a camper is prohibited.

Our strategy is to fill up when we arrive at the campground, and then typically every 2-3 days, I'll fill up our six gallon bucket (standing at one of the aforementioned spigots) and haul that back to the camper, where the bucket has a nozzle that fits right into the holding tank. While I'm filling up the six gallon bucket, which can take a few minutes, I'll step aside if someone has a smaller container or bucket to fill, but it's rarely been an issue.

I just look at it as trying to have good manners
