I'm guessing that you will have electric, and if so, there is an excellent chance water is available, just no sewer or drain connection.
If this is the case, plan on doing as much as possible outside. A 5 gallon water jug on the picnic table for drinking and tooth brushing. Wash dishes there too.
Learn to conserve water on the shower, and you will be fine.

toilet consumption is about a quart per usage overall, so you have about 120 flushes with that tank.

I know how much water I would use... [emoticon] I have no idea how much water you will use.. [emoticon] I'd be close after a full week of ultra conserving.. I usually only go on long weekend trips, so I tend to use more as I know I have plenty, but when I go longer, I have to adjust dramatically!

Unless you already know how to 'conserve' water in a 'camping' environment, it's just going to be a learning experience for ya..

Worst case, you have to unplug and go to the dump station and dump and get some more fresh water..

Or, get one of those 'tote' things and haul it manually and get a 5 gallon can and fill as needed..

Good luck! Mitch

Thank you all for your input, much to think about.
I do have a 5 gal jug for fresh water. We wouldn't drink that, but we do have a water filter pitcher we would bring. And maybe some gallons of drinking water.
It's a rented trailer we will be towing there, so I could unhook and take it to the dump station. Might still get the water tote.
