Tent Shower

5 posts in this topic

Ok. I just recently discovered these at the store and have been seeing one or two here and there at campgrounds. Thinking about getting one but interested in what the general feeling is on these among campers on here. Per the RV dumping water post, do most campgrounds or campers want the shower water on the ground near the camp site, granted its a minimal amount in most cases? Is that a big deal to lots of people?

Not to start an argument. But what is the difference between one of those and someone emptying their grey water tanks?

Personally if it is away from the water and maybe off towards the woods, no big deal.

I think that's a legitimate point. We've thought of getting one because it would be easier to wash up our small children on site versus lugging them and everything down to the shower facilities. But not sure if its necessary.

Heck if I was in your shoes I would go for it. You aren't actually going pollute anything, more like have a spot that's kinda wet. I really could see it if you were literally on the lake shore, but back in the campground away from the water you aren't going to harm anything.

just bring camp suds or dr. bonners or aveda shampoo stuff that biodegrades if you have concerns...... if the shampoos are okay, they'll say so right on the bottle...... most aren't..... but it's up to you.....

the showers are pretty slick..... i recommend 'em

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
