Living in the Lap of Luxury

Mills River campground has no showers. Now we have camped before with only cold showers, but no showers? We didn’t think so. Not for a week!

So our guys rigged up this shower for our camp and it worked like a charm!

Here they are setting it up. The base is a pallet.

A huge tarp served as the privacy enclosure.

Ropes and zip-ties through the grommets held it all in place.

A rubber door mat made the flooring a little more comfortable.


The shower itself was a purchased propane set up.

We improved it by using an Igloo cooler as the reservoir.

A camp chair served to hold dry clothes.

Yes, sir! As one of our camping neighbors said, we were “living in the lap of luxury.”
