where can you get shower facilities free in Texas ? Is there any free camping areas near Baytown Texas and? I-10December 6, 2022 at 4:51 pm
Your best bet for a free (hot) shower is at an Army Corps of Engineers campground. Their showers are reserved for paying campers, however because of budget constraints, and the COVID-19 shutdowns, most of their campgrounds no longer have staffed entrances. Which means, anyone can just drive in without paying or showing that you’ve paid.December 7, 2022 at 1:01 pm
