Our mini Oregon road trip wouldn't have been complete without telling you a little secret kept in the quaint, historic old town section of Florence (map). Not the sprawl part of town…I'm talking near the Marina/RV/Campground exists...free showers!!! Boo-yes stinky travelers!!! We had been camping at nearby Waxmyrtle, exploring the Dunes and other stops (here & here). Our campground didn't have showers so we were on the lookout. We stopped at a pay to do laundry/shower place in the newer part of town and a nice gentleman told us to search for the free showers near the port! He was right!
Old town Florence has lots more to offer (not just the showers) - cool restaurants, coffee, shops, river walk, and more. It's a great 1/2 day trip if you're close! A clean ending to a great Oregon Coast adventure!

My mistake; observed the locks on the doors but not actually locked! Signage makes it sound as though they are restricted in use, but are accessible.

These showers are not free - THEY ARE FOR CAMPERS ONLY! We have one restroom open to the public during business hours 8am-5pm, however, the shower is not accessible during the times when the restroom is open to the public
