I have always heard there are no stupid questions......so here goes.

Since we purchased our TT in June we have stayed at Corps parks.  There, I was able to set up a small table near the external shower and wash dishes instead of filling the grey water tank in the trailer.  Is this allowed anywhere other than Corps parks? Is it allowed anywhere but GA?
Thanks

I suspect it all depends on where your dishwater goes.  Directly into a drain or sewer is good.  Onto the ground, not good and certainly national parks do strongly object.  Parks that have tenters expect outside dishwashing and many make provision for it with dishwashing sinks etc..

Just a couple of thoughts tho.  When we boondock, we go to paper plates and cups to stretch the grey water tanks.  Other folks use blue rollaway tanks to extend capacity and dump without breaking camp.
