Actually, I wouldn't ever recommend drinking the water at campgrounds, it's usually non-potable water, and not filtered or cleaned in anyway what so ever. You can buy in line filters to add to your system, but I still wouldn't recommend that. Think mexican water, and the results that follow.
Also, if your camper was in the sun often or higher heat you can also add 5oz of bleach to every gallon of water you put into the hold tank, but make sure you dilute the bleach into the gallons you add of water first, best not to pour it into the tanks directly. Then pressurize the system for a day or two, drive a little to move it around, and then flush through the lines and into the holding tanks. It cleans the flow lines and drain lines both. This is only needed when the RV freeze has been in for a long time or left in the lines with high heat.
The TH I bought had RV freeze in for 2 years as the owners didn't use it the last year. I poured in about half a gallon of bleach as I have 2x40gallon tanks, with water, and then did my procedure. Then I took a trip with the tanks full and lines full and everything was clear as water should be.
