  1. Free dump also available at Wylie Park just NW of Aberdeen SD ~ about a mile out of town north on US 281.
    Location is on the west side of Wylie park as you enter the campground.
    There is no charge to dump. I’ve used it several times and water available to do the black water tank flush too.
