EMINENCE, MO: A new shower house will be installed in the Alley Spring Campground the week of July 17. In order to ensure visitor and staff safety while heavy equipment and large trucks are on site for installation, most of the campground will be closed temporarily beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, July 17. The 100 and 200 Loops will remain open during installation, and the entire campground is expected to re-open by the evening of Wednesday, July 19. During the temporary closure, access through the campground to the Bluff Hole swimming area will also be restricted.
The new shower house is a CXT Concrete Building unit, a pre-fabricated concrete structure which is assembled on-site, requiring heavy equipment for installation. CXT structures are very durable for long-term use in an area prone to flooding. Following the initial on-site installation, park staff will need several additional days to complete final installation steps and ready the shower house for public use.
