10 best portable shower tents for camping (2024)

10 best portable shower tents for camping (2024)

Here is our guide to the BEST camping shower tents for 2024. We are a family of five in a VWT5 campervan, (not forgetting vanlife with our HUGE dog). There isn’t any room in our converted campervan for a shower, so we opt to pack a portable camping shower for the days that we are ‘off grid’.

Camping shower tents are a great addition to your camping set up as they offer additional privacy and a place to wash, regardless of where you decide to pitch up, and if you have amenities that are nearby. 

Don’t get me wrong – we often opt to stay on a campsite, as we generally choose campsites with great facilities for the kids, including campsites near to water for the paddleboards or great coastal campsites in the UK.

Despite this, we have enjoyed many a campervan trip, across the UK and beyond, without access to basic facilities such as a washroom. During May half term, we headed to the Outer Hebrides in our Campervan, and here there are campsites but also plenty of places to pitch that may not have nearby amenities. We also love a family friendly festivals in the UK, and a shower tent with a solar shower bag can be a great addition to your camping set up. Let’s face it … There is nothing better than warm shower at the end of a long day outdoors.

Camping Shower tents

A portable camping shower tent is a great option for outdoors and is a must have for any camping enthusiast, particularly if you love your ‘off grid’ adventures. 

Camping shower tents are easy to use, and often have a pop-up design making it easy to put up/pack away and easy to transport. If you love your outdoor activities (hiking, cold water swimming or paddleboarding for example) then a privacy tent is a ideal as it also works as a changing tent, or a place to store all your outdoor gear.

Space in the VWT5 can be tight, and we have used an additional pop-up tent or portable shower tent as an additional storage space for years. We often store personal items such as our SUP boards, scooters, outdoor camping gear, and car seats etc when they are not in use, making it a great camper storage hack for vanlife

Having an additional ‘separate room’ nearby the campervan is great even if you are staying on a campsite with wash room facilities as you don’t have to dart across the field when the weather conditions are poor – a great option for when you have young children.

Best outdoor shower tent – things to consider

A good quality shower tent offers a place to have a quick shower or freshen up if you are in a campervan, camping, hiking, participating in watersports. It is all down to personal preference when deciding on which shower tent to buy. Here are a few things to think about when choosing your portable privacy tent.

Height

A shower tent needs to be high enough for you to stand up straight. The majority of tents that we have listed here range between 190cm and upto 220 cm so great for taller people too.

Have a look at how small the tent folds and if they have extra features such as a carry bag for easy storage and transportation. A pop-up shower tent often take minutes to put up with no assembly required, but can sometimes take a little longer to fold and store back in the carry bag!

Floor

Consider if you want a shower tent with a floor. A shower tent without a floor will drain better with the water, but if you are using your shower tent for storage or an additional space, you may prefer a removable floor area. The Lumaland Outdoor Pop Up Shower Tent has a removable mess floor which works great for changing and storage in addition to a shower tent.

Additional Space

Some shower tents/privacy tents have extra features such as an additional space providing a separate room or changing room. This can provide ample space for shower/toilet/changing or additional space to store items and make a little more room in your campervan!

Additional Features

There are plenty of shower tents on the market, and some have additional features to help with ease of use. These include:

  • Mesh windows
  • Zippered windows
  • Storage pockets
  • Towel holder
  • Mesh shelf
  • Removable floor/groundsheet

Price

We have tried to include a wide range of shower tents or privacy camping tent to suit all budgets with a price range of £36.99 – £181.61. The cheapest shower tent is just over £35.00 and is good value and could be considered an affordable price for an additional outdoor space to your camping set up.
