Campgrounds without Potable Water

The lack of drinking water at a campground can be an inconvenience, especially for those without an RV or travel trailer. The obvious solution is to bring along a 5 or 7 gallon water canister to use for drinking water, dish washing, and even teeth brushing.

Another solution to consider is to use a quality water filter to filter water from a nearby stream or lake, a process backpackers use all the time. While hand pump filters work well, they can become tiresome. A gravity flow filter is really the best solution for campground use. Simply fill the reservoir with water, hang it from a tree limb, and enjoy clean water filling your water jug at a rate of almost ½ gallon a minute.
