Having a hot shower when camping can be an essential part of your camping experience – and I’m speaking from experience as a father of three and an experienced camper. Not only can a hot shower restore your energy levels and refresh your spirits, washed and relaxed campers are much happier in general. It’s therefore no surprise that campers tend to be on the lookout for ways to ensure they have a hot shower while camping.
Being able to take a hot shower while camping certainly isn’t as easy as popping in the shower at home, especially when you are trying to save on space and balance your camping needs with the practical requirements of keeping a hot shower. But with a bit of preparation and the right tools, you can have your own hot showers whenever you’re out camping.
The first thing to bear in mind is that not all campgrounds have hot showers available. If you’re planning on taking a hot shower while camping, you may want to look into the facilities at your chosen campsite beforehand. Feel free to also ask fellow campers for their setup if they are already camping there.
The key to having a hot shower while camping is to have the right equipment. Depending on whether you plan to camp for only a few days or a few weeks, you may look at the available portable camping showers. You can also look at buying a portable water heater if you plan to stay for a longer period or you want to be able to have an extended hot shower.
To make sure you have plenty of hot water, you may also want to look into investing in a tank for water storage. A water tank is especially useful if you plan to camp off-grid and want to minimize your impact on the environment. The water tank can then be attached to the portable water heater, so you’ll have plenty of hot water for the duration of your stay.
For campers on the move, you may consider investing in a hot water pressure washer. These are great for ensuring that, no matter where you are, you have access to a powerful hot shower. Some of these even come with a foot pump for easy operation.
Of course, you can also opt for solar showers. Many campers come with camping solar showers that are easy to set up and operate. If you’re in an area that gets a lot of sunlight, these can be an economical and practical way of having hot (or warm) showers and they’re generally also excellent for preserving your water supply.
Finally, if you’re planning on using a hot shower while camping, make sure that you’re using plenty of biodegradable soaps and shampoos. These are much kinder to the environment and can avoid polluting the local ecosystem.
