Used these last year after our trip. Not sure if they were new last year but pretty new and very nice. If you are heading east after your trip you may want to use these before you hit the road. No charge to those who hold a camping permit...not that anyone will check up on you.

I used the showers during the 2016 season and I'm think they could have been there as early as 2014 (although I didn't use them that year).

Very nice to have a warm shower at the end of a 2-week trip. Press the button next to the shower to get a timed (perhaps 2 minutes) of water before you need to press the button again.

Of course, you supply your own soap and towel. Each "stall" has an independent outside, lockable door with a small dressing area and shower. Look to your left as you exit the park from the canoe launch area and you will see a small parking lot. The shower house is but a short stroll further on into a wooded area.

In May 2009 we did a trip from Cache Bay to French Lake and stumbled across new appearing showers as described above. Maybe the park has built more of them. What we found and used back then were wonderful and a real pleasure after 6 days.

I pack a plastic bag for after the trip shower. It contains clean close, towel, washcloth, and fly spray.
