We always told our boys, if you're old enough to go to the shower house by yourself, you're old enough to figure out what you need and take it with you.

They figured it out real quick. Don't understand the new parenting that requires the parent to do the kids thinking in matters like this.

I usually go to the bathhouse in sandles and bring shower/water shoes with me for inside the shower.

We both use a nylon mesh bag to hold the soap, shampoo, etc. Also bought a plastic over the door double hook to hang things on. Some bath houses have the hooks missing. If the bath house isn't full, the wife has been known to use the electric hand dryer to dry her hair. Our new rv, that we just got in Dec and haven't used it yet, will eliminate the bath house trips.

I use a small hanging travel bag with shower & hygiene essentials in it (shampoo, conditioner, face cleanser, cotton balls, moisturizer, lotion, soap, basic make up, toothpaste, floss, toothbrush) as well as shower shoes and a double sided mirror that can hang up on a clip or bungee (sometimes mirror space in bath house is limited or I am just not feeling social enough to share the space over a tiny sink)

I don't carry a blow dryer.. my hair is too long, thick & curly to try to dry fast...so it's hair clips or pony tail holders for me.

I do bring a flat iron or a curling rod to touch up or remove the wild camping hair for the times I know we're taking an excursion from campground to the local town. ALTHO a hat works good too! Haha

Good luck !

Hi

We use a plastic tote something like the picture below. I tilt it to empty out the water and the handle makes it easy to carry.

We store it in the shower with everything on the tote.

Makeup....while camping. Don't think I understand that one. Then again, I've smelled someone's perfume at a hundred yards (or close enough) on a trail in the middle of nowhere before.

That would be someone who does not know about the bath house.

Aw come on. Wait guys - I explained that one! For me, make up is for town excursions. Men are lucky that they just look great the way they are. You guys can have grey hair (or no hair) and still look awesome! Men can get away without shaving but not many ladies can. Haha

For me, a little foundation and light color is a nice touch when stopping for breakfast or lunch on the way home from a camp trip. We rarely take the straight way home - we meander and stop at little places along the way. I don't put make up on (just sunscreen) when we are digging for rocks or on the lake fishing. The fish and rocks and dirt don't care & neither do I but if I am going to town, I want good service and courtesy which I have found lacking when hitting town with camping face. Haha

My girls take a small camp table. Sometimes there are hooks on the wall. Sometimes there is a place to sit. But everything always seems to be wet. They use the table to put their clothing, tote, and everything that they want to keep dry.
