For recreational campgrounds and government operated parks, one of the important operations management factors to remember is having a pump system to pump out septic waste from RV’s, portable toilets and removing wastewater from public areas after storms or floods. There are a number of pump products available to parks and campgrounds to manage septic pumping, waste oil pumping from restaurants, grey water, black water and portable toilet pumping.
Honey Wagon – Waste Containment Systems
The honey wagon is a trailer mounted or ATV cart mounted pump out system with a tank, hoses and pump to pump out septic waste from RVs and portable toilets. If your campground or park has a restaurant on the property, then a honey wagon can also pump out the fryer oil or waste trap grease from the kitchen area. After heavy rain or storms, the honey wagon can clear up contaminated liquid quickly so your park can reopen quickly. Below are some of the more popular honey wagons for campgrounds and parks.

Diaphragm pumps are a dependable pump technology to pump septic waste at aprks and campgrounds. The Mud Sucker type has a flapper system that opens with the twist of a knob to remove any blockages like forks, spoons, personal hygiene products, Lego – you name it. Sometimes people put the weirdest items down their toilets. Below you will find some popular diaphragm pumps for campgrounds.
Keep in mind that all diaphragm pumps are available with electric, engine, air or hydraulic power to drive the pumps. The question we get most often is should my campground use an engine driven or electric powered diaphragm pump? The answer is when do you want to do the RV or port-a-potty pump outs? During the day or early in the morning? An engine is louder than electric pump so if you plan on pumping out during early morning hours then electric diaphragm pump might offer quieter pump outs. However, you will require access to a minimum 110V outlet. If this is not available you will need to go with a gas diaphragm pump
For larger state parks and campgrounds that have several portable toilets and restaurants to service then a vacuum pump may offer a better alternative. Larger parks and campgrounds may also offer festivals and other venues that attract hundreds or even thousands of visitors for a specific period of time.
Park operators must not forget that pumping sewage and septic waste may be required and to plan the pump out equipment accordingly.
Sewer Systems and Campgrounds and Parks
Even if there is sewer on site, these sewers have been known to back up. In the event of a sewer back up, a waste containment system can be a disaster management tool to use to keep the campground or park operating until repairs are done.
