In the middle of the whole Covid thing going on, Ont. Prov. Parks decided, for the time being at least, that they will let us use our reservations that we made back in Feb., and go camping this summer. Yay!! Outhouses and comfort stations will be open, however all showers will be closed for the entire summer. They don't want to put staff at risk by having them go into the showers and try to clean them between every single person taking a shower. So what's the alternative? That's the big question. First of all, I don't shower every single day while camping, I'm in the lake quite often, and I believe that seems to take care of things. BUT, if you're going through a rainy stretch of weather, its always nice to jump into a hot shower after 3-4 days of cold rain. We also camp for a 3 week stretch, so obviously, I do normally take numerous showers during that time. Ontario Parks recently released a set of rules for showering this summer. It can be found at http://www.ontarioparks.com/parksblog/what-to-do-when-showers-are-closed/ In short it says that you can only shower inside your camper where the grey water can be stored in a tank and disposed of properly at the dumping station. OR, jump in the lake and scrub with fresh lake water - no soap. Period. So, no soap in the lake, no biodegradable soap in the lake, no soap of any kind hitting the ground at the campsite, no soap anywhere. You are not allowed to use an outdoor shower at the campsite because of soap getting on the ground, but nothing is mentioned about collecting the grey water at an outside shower at the campsite. I've seen some pictures where people stand in a kiddie pool to collect the water while showering, then dump it into buckets to haul away to the dumping station. Wonder if that would be allowed? I guess this is a check mark in the + column for the darkside campers having an indoor shower.
