    Default Water in camping?

    I had a search and couldn't see anything mentioned so thought I'd ask...

    What's the story with water in the campgrounds? Are there taps to fill up water for say a solar shower or to fill up a tub to wash camp dishes?

    Thanks!

    nope. Buy about 50 bottles per person before you go in.

    They clean the port-a-potties out daily supposedly. Problem solved.

    Are you thinking of hiding in one and taking a shower as it gets cleaned?

    Last year we bought a junk load of those 4-something-Litre water bottles from Food 4 Less down the road, think they were 99c each. It's worth buying 5 or more of them if you can fit them, it'll save a bit of money and time.

    lines make me anxious, especially those shower ones. Solar shower or shower in a can aka deodorant will do the trick. More time for music and drinking!

    THERE WAS A HOSE HIDDEN IN VOLUNTEER TENT CAMPING LAST YEAR, not too far away from shuttle drop off and pick up but kind of hidden. Obviously there aren't any volunteers this year, so I don't know what that area will be called, if somebody has a map, I might be able to point it out. Probably not suitable for drinking and the hose might not be there, but the faucet should be there still. But as for showering and even washing dishes I would imagine this is clean enough water.

    I'm so tired right now that I thought you said HORSE instead of hose, and was wondering what relevance a hidden horse had to water.

    There used to be hoses behind the shower trailers.
