Camping near Owl's Bend with showers?

Postby JenD » Wed Mar 01, 2017 3:34 pm

Does anyone know of campgrounds with shower facilities that would be open this weekend near the junction of the Current River and Blair Creek Sections of the OT?

I called Jacks Fork Canoe Rental and Campground in Eminence and they said they don't have their water on yet, and it looks like Powder Mill doesn't have water until April?

Any suggestions or local knowledge?

Thanks!

Most reliable option will be a dip in the river this time of year.

Maybe Alley Springs Campground (NPS) but that's quite a drive for a shower.

Alley Spring had at least one bathroom open and a running outside hydrant when I was there a couple weeks ago, but the shower house didn't appear to be open. I don't think you will find showers anywhere in the area. Johnson's Shut-ins might be the closest and that's probably at least 40 miles. I haven't been there this winter but they usually have the showers in the electric loop open all year.
