    ditto on the baby wipe thing. Works like a champ.

    I am sure the Park must have some regulation about the use of even biodegradeable soap in the rivers but in the summer time you can't beat finding a nice plunge pool to use as a shower....mighty refreshing.

    With some of the people I've seen,they pollute the water by just getting in.
    I'll take animals over them anyday.

    Default check the bulletin board

    Hi Tom,
    I had the same question a couple of years ago. There is definitely a list of locations posted on the bulletin board at the check-in station in Elkmont. If I remember right, there are two or three options (all of them are in Townsend). Iíve used the shower at Big Meadow campground several times. They charge $4 per person.

    The Ranger office where you check -in at the campground used to have a list of
    places you could go in Townsend to take a shower.

    Showers? Who needs them anyway? They are over rated.
    Anyway, I usually scrub up in my tent (it's a family size)

    You are right Oldhickory, after several years of camping in the Park, a large tent, a bucket of water, wash clothe and wet wipes can do wonders.
