Camping Showers

View as

Camping is definitely one of the most exciting activities for most outdoor enthusiasts. As a matter of fact, it is beneficial not only to your body but to your mind as well as you get to breathe in the fresh air and unwind. And although camping does not offer all the perks that your home does, you can still cook for yourself and stay clean while enjoying the beauty around you.

Staying clean and comfortable with yourself is important when camping, especially if you 're traveling for longer, or are staying at a location which doesn 't have a shower block. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem - camping shower kits. Thanks to these great camping inventions, you won 't have to worry that much about dirtying your clothes or your sleeping bag. After long trekking across mountainous terrains, the whole family can take advantage of them thanks to their adjustable design and functionality.

Why you should opt for a portable camping shower?

The benefits of having a portable shower are numerous. The biggest one is probably its portability which makes it possible for you to use camping shower kits anywhere, as long there is a water source. Or, if there is no water source, you can take water with you, and voilà, you have a shower!

Another benefit is that they use minimum water for every showering. So, if you want to cut down on the amount of water you use, during your camping trips, a portable shower will be the perfect choice for you. Keep in mind that camping showers have other purposes as well, such as cleaning cars, animals, dishes, spot cleaning, and other outdoor activities. The fact that they are not limited only to personal cleanliness, opens up a world of possibilities. Plus, some of them have a multi-use design, so you can use them as a change room or a toilet tent. There is extra ventilation at the top of the tent so don 't worry about the unwanted dampness or smells.

Factors to Consider

You should take into consideration not only the capacity of the shower but also the time it will take to heat up. For example, if you 're using a solar shower, keep in mind that it may take hours to warm up. Another important thing to know is how long you can shower. The length of your possible bath time will depend on your shower 's capacity as well as on how the water is distributed.

How about camping shower tents?

Easy to Set Up

This is especially important if you are planning to move from campsite to campsite. You don 't want a camping toilet tent that you need to wrestle with, especially when you 're tired from a day of outdoor adventure.

Some of the best camping shower tents are ones that spring into action, ready to be used. You don 't need to play around with tethering it to the ground or wrestling with support poles. The set up can be done in a matter of minutes.


We all know that the shower and bathroom are private places, which is why some of the best shower tents are made out of opaque material that ensures that you can do your business without flashing the world. Privacy is especially important if you want your tent to double as a porta-potty tent.

Most tents are built for privacy, with opaque material and windows that can zip closed for the ultimate showering experience. The only caveat is that you should make sure that your shower tent is adequately ventilated to avoid overheating or trapping unpleasant smells within its confines.


If you want to make sure that your camping shower enclosure is the most comfortable it can be, make sure that you choose a shower tent that is adequately ventilated. These tents can get reasonably steamy, so having a window that zips open is a definite must, especially if multiple people are using the tent.

As necessary as ventilation is for pop up shower tents, it 's even more critical if your tent is going to double as a bathroom. Without proper ventilation, your tent can soak up toilet smells and become a stinky hot box that nobody wants to use. Just like at home, you need to crack a window!

How to maintain your camping shower

Regularly maintaining your camping shower will help you to get the most out of it and prolong its lifespan. For best results, follow the instructions. Most camping shower kits come with instruction manuals, so read them carefully and do as instructed.
