keepers and camping

Has anyone here used their Keeper while camping?

I'm going to be camping (just for a couple of days) this weekend, and my period should also be arriving on Saturday or Sunday. I've been to this campground before, and the bathrooms are pretty dirty and soap is difficult to come by (I think I'll bring my own, though). There's also a lake there, and I'll probably want to swim.

I guess I'm wondering how to go about keeping the Keeper clean enough to use in a dirty environment. Normally, I wouldn't worry too much, but I'm getting my IUD inserted when I get back, on Monday or Tuesday, and I'm a little bit worried about getting an infection from being all dirty and hot and swimming in the lake and stuff. (I realize that's more than a little paranoid of me, but I'm nervous about the insertion so these things keep coming up and bothering me *sheepish smile*)

Any advice?
