showers in the sierra

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

showers in the sierra

Post by metasyn11 » Fri Apr 13, 2007 5:21 pm

I was wondering where there are good places to take cheap showers after dayhikes or between backpacking trips anywhere in the Sierra. I hope to spend a lot of time there this summer, but don't always want to spring for a motel... any suggestions? Thanks!

The baths at Mono Hot Springs are a righteous end to a week of hiking.

Geez! I thought this was a weather report.

I think a hot shower at Tom's Place costs $3 or so...maybe it was Rock Creek Lake resort...I can't remember which.

There are also showers at Lodgepole. These have truly come in handy.

I'm probably showing my age. But I remember the concessionair camps in yosemite backcountry used to let you pay for a shower. I remember taking one at Glen Aulin once but having nothing but stinking clothes to put on. I also remember sneaking into the showers at Tuolume Meadows. This was in the early 60's though.

I wasn't aware that old rangers showered? Is this one more requirement I missed?

Both Cedar Grove and Grant Grove have showers operated by the concessionaire as well.

Anybody know if there's a place to get a shower near Cherry Lake? My girlfriend thanks you in advance. ;)

Adding a couple to the list:

Cedar Grove (kind of dingy, and they close between 1 and 3 pm) in Kings Canyon NP.

Wishon Resort, for trips out of Wishon or Courtright areas.
