Well, I am happy to report that we did figure out what the problem was with the septic system…it was just a holding tank. Yep, the state park only has one campsite with “full hookups”. That is our site.
The only issue is that the septic hookup is simply a holding tank that has to be emptied from time to time.
We did realize also that the run off from the tremendous amount of rain we have also fills the holding tank. So, we have ordered some supplies including a tarp to help keep rain water from filling up the tank and a water use counter that fits on our fresh water hose to count how much water we are using.
With a little finesse, we will be able to manage the holding tank with no problem. The experience of living in a state park has had a learning curve, but we are quickly adapting to each new issue.
