Hi All. I just finished a multi day backpacking trip on the C&O tow path Williamsport to 15 Mile Creek Area. The NPS listed all water pumps as ON for my section hike as of 7/1/19. Please note that the Cacapon Junction H/B campsites and The Devils Alley Pumps are in reality off or broken. The campsite between these 2 sites has a working pump that is ON. Hope nobody reached this area mile 134 in need of water or plans to camp at Cacapon like me. If you are really in need of water, get on the Paved bike path located in the been side of the canal, local residents have coolers of cold bottled water for sale. $1 (accessible by several paths or just walking across a dry area of canal) I always travel with a water filter so I could have filtered water from the canal or Potomac if I had to do so. Lesson learned! I emailed NPS but it's a holiday so pump info may not be corrected until next week.
