What are the options for a shower around the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and Rocky Mountain Nation Parks?

Doesn't appear the campgrounds have any facilities. Are there any truck stops that are not annoyiny far away?

Trip is mid October.

Surprised RMNP doesn't have showers. If there is a National Forest nearby, they might have something. State parks or private campgrounds in the area might be better options.

I'd probably stay away from truck stops.

How long will you be camping?

Climate is so dry out there, a change of clothes and some baby wipes can go a long way. lol

4 days. But I find after the 2nd full day I like a shower. Maybe I am just picky... ;)
