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.

In the back country rules and regulations go down to

#12 Polluting park waters is prohibited. Do not wash dishes or bathe with soap and water.

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.
