DH and I used to go to Nascar races regularly. The tracks would bring in portable showers for the campers, and you had to pay to shower.

Campground in Cape May, NJ charges for their shower. It does seem that in this day and age, a shower should be free.

Very excited for you to go to Ft Wilderness for the first time. I bet you will love it!

Oh no - I know some places do. Just not sure where the idea that FW charged came from. We almost always stay at NY state parks so haven't run into it but I have heard of it. But FW definitely does not.

Never camped out west, mostly south east, so maybe that's why we've never run into that situation. We have a MH so wouldn't use the cc showers anyway, but would know of the charges if they were relevant.

While the showers and restrooms are free, between the mens and womens comfort stations, there is a laundry which costs $2.00 for a washer and another $2.00 for a dryer. On the outside there is an ice dispenser that also costs $2.00 per bag. Have your quarters ready. Oh, and there is a change dispenser in the laundry.

I have stayed at the Fort about 1 week a year for most of the last 7 years and can only recall 1 occurrence where the hot water was out (due to a plumbing issue which was repaired the next day).

However, I do have the idea that this year I am going to setup a table outside the comfort station on my loop and charge admission.

Great idea until Disney comes calling

I don't know where I read that the showers at FW cost money but obviously that information was wrong. Thanks everyone.

There's not a charge for showers at FW. That campground is THE BEST campground I have ever camped at. Just fabulous. Everything is nice and clean and there's so much to do. I could live there!! 52 days and counting.....

Stop giving them ideas on how they can suck even more money from us.
