This article on Five Gallon Idea. There is also a video by 2 Brothers that will show you how they put together a very cool camp sink with 5 gallon buckets. The sink has a pump so that you can pimp the water with your foot, the bottom bucket holds the clean water that gets pumped to the faucet and then the top bucket holds the grey water until you can empty it. I like this idea. I have seen folks using square buckets of water that you just lay on the edge of a picnic table and turn the spout to let the water out. These work fine until a youngster leaves the spout on. Then you have no water plus a mud puddle below the sink. This seems a lot less wasteful.
