The best ways to purify water while camping

When you're backcountry camping in the woods away from the amenities and utilities of commercial camping resorts, food and water are both critical, of course, but you can survive longer without the former than without the latter, so after shelter, water may be the single most important factor on your outing. And if you're not carrying a sufficient amount with you (which for multiple days may get quite heavy and unwieldy to manage), you will need to purify the water you will find there. Water from rivers, lakes, streams, and spring may look clean when looking with your eyes but there are a lot of contaminants present.

By the way, if you're visiting an administered campsite with a natural water source, it pays to call ahead to ask which contaminants they're verified present in that water source so that you can decide the right water-treatment method.
