When backpacking or hitchhiking its great to have a shower every once in a while!

- football stadium wardrobes
- swimming halls
- camping sites
- lakes

It has to be free or cheap, and lets say you are wearing a big backpack so it's obvious your on the road.

Do you have any more sweet suggestions?

Marinas/Trailer parks will often have bath houses...you could probably get away with using them...  I'm assuming campgrounds are the same way, but you'd probably have issues with the gated access...

Also - Public pools normally have a few shower stalls.

For cheap showers, recreation centers may only charge you $5 or so to use their facilities, so that might be cheap enough...

have you tried a smaller back pack? read up on digital nomads. they try to pack as light and as small as possible. tynan is a great example.

you can go gung ho and take a 1 gallon tub and poke holes in it. i'm not a fan of cold showers though.

you can be slick and go into large hotels right after people leave and before the official check out time (around 10 or 11). this works well in large places that have a lot of college or high school kids - they tend to leave their doors wide open when they leave.

In the US, most truck stops have at least one huge ass gas station for truckers that is set up with showers and all.  Hell, I've even seen strip clubs beside major trucking highways that advertised having showers for truckers..lol

I will never pay for a fucking shower. It is either free or i will smell like a pig.

So, when backpacking I usually sleep somwehere. Where I sleep,  I usually also take a shower. (it can be hostel, or couchsurfing host, or at the girl's place in the morning  after an SNL).
Well in rare occasions I dont book any hostels, and dont have couchsurfing host. I just put my bags in a locker and hope finding a girl who will bring me home in the night. Sometimes though, I fail at finding the girl and then I dont sleep and cant shower... For these situations, finding a free shower can be cool indeed.(well actually usually after the night without sleep I book a night in a hostel and so I can shower and rest in the afternoon, depending on the check-in time)

Thinking about it twice, the most important shower is the one in the evening before going out. So yes if you are in a hostel, problem solved. But if not, which means full adventure time, planning to pull a girl at her place( or to sleep in the nature, more adventure time again, but then who cares how you smell, you are into the wild..),  yes indeed you should find a free shower somewhere..
