The National Park Service publishes the locations of the water pumps on the C&O Canal Towpath Trail here: https://www.nps.gov/choh/planyourvisit/conditions.htm. Is there a similar list for the GAP?

I am not aware of a similar, comprehensive listing of water pumps per se' for the GAP as there is no common entity that oversees and maintains the GAP like the National Park Service does for the C&O. That said, there is water available at several public trailside locations along the GAP. Here's a list of locations with free water along GAP that I am aware of. Pittsburgh Point State Park.- Fountains Homestead Pumphouse - Restroom sinks McKeesport Marina - Fountain Boston Ballfield - Fountain Dravo Campground - Pump West Newton Visitor Center - Fountain Cedar Creek Park Campground - Hose bib Round Bottom Campground - Pump (Non-Potable) Connellsville Trailside Campground - Fountain Ohiopyle - Fountain Rockwood - Fountain Meyersdale Visitor Center Frostburg - Fountain Cumberland Visitor Center - Restroom Sinks There may be others and I invite other travelers to augment or correct this list. Of course, water can be obtained or purchased at other commercial locations in cities along and near the trail.
