Private campgrounds will have showers. U.S.F.S. campground will proabbly not. I stayed in one BLM campground on the Nothern Tier that actually had showers. Some state parks will. Some city parks will. (Bring shower shoes like flip flops and some might be s little grungy.) Sometimes you can shower at the city pool or, as noted, buy a shower from a gym, etc.
The AC maps idicate whether a campground is private, U.S.F.S., etc. You will probably encounter more indoor lodging that you think you will. If you are leaving in a little more than a month, why not buy the maps now so you can get an idea of what's available?
I did the section from Missoula to Fairplay, CO starting the 3rd week in June and mid-July. I encountered at least a dozen people that I can remember, mostly going to W-E, but a few going E-W. You seem to be starting later so maybe you will have more E-W riders.
