Showers Available?
« on: September 01, 2013, 08:21:38 PM »
Are riders who are NOT camping able to use the campground showers post ride?

definitely not if this is what you have in mind ;)
 
but seriously, you'd have to ask park officials and I'd guess maybe with a fee attached.

The official answer is no.  The showers are only open to those camping in the Buffalo Ridge, Raccoon Ridge and Taylor Ridge campgrounds only.  They are technically not to be used by campers in the rally sites either.

The times we have Rally camped we had to pay for a "real" site as well and they allowed us to use the Modern restrooms.

We've rally camped plenty of times and always used the real potties and showers. Never had anyone tell us we couldn't.

In the summer time, go to the pool and pay the $3 bucks for the pool.  You can shower and hop in the pool to cool off.

When we have trail work weekends and get a rally camp site, the Park has allowed us to use the showers, but technically the showers are not provided for Rally camping.  I will see if the park would be interested in offering showers per a fee.
