NEARBY RV DUMP POINTS

Depending on what you agree with the Camplify van owner, you may be required to empty the toilet and grey water tanks before returning the van. It’s very important to empty this waste at a proper RV dump point. To make your life easier, we’ve outlined a few located within reasonable distance from the event below.  
 
PARKES
 
  • Spicer Caravan Park Dump Point – Cnr of Victoria & Albert Streets
  • Kelly Reserve Dump Point –  Cnr of Newell Highway & Thomas Street
  • Parkes Showground Dump Point – Victoria St. Continue along Victoria Street passing the Trotting Track on your right and the entrance is after the right-hand curve in the road. Drive straight ahead to the caretaker’s cottage just after the stables; turn left and the toilets and dump point is in front of you.
 
FORBES
 
  • Forbes Shire Council's sewer treatment works, located off the Newell Highway heading south from the CBD Lions park on Lake Forbes. This point is located next to the toilet blocks and is open 24 hours.
