Shower facilities in SEKI?


Would anyone know what shower facilities are currently available for people tent camping within Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park? We are staying 3 nights in Lake Hume, 2 nights in Dorst Creek, and 2 or 3 nights at a first come first served (hopefully Azalea). I read that Cedar Grove showers are closed due to drought, but wondering if anyone has any other info about any other locations in the park that we would be able to shower.

Thank you!

Lodgepole Showers are the nicest - but Stoney Creek Lodge (right up the road from Dorst) also has showers during daylight hours (or they usually do - we haven't been up this year).

Last time we were there, you paid for a token at the General Store to use the Lodgepole Showers, They were closed for cleaning in the middle afternoon (they are about 30 minutes from Dorst and even further from Azalea).

We carry a back-up solar shower just in case. Have fun! Lodgepole is a very relaxing place to hang out and take a shower (and to be truthful, we sometimes just don bathing suits and go in the creek and rinse off, hair and all - no soap except park-approved soap).
