There are many dog friendly places that may have accessible water for your pet. With the proper research you may be able to find pet friendly places with water sources. Remember that you never know when a pet friendly water source may be in need of repair.   Even if you are able to buy a water bottle not every pet knows how to drink from one. There are keychain collapsible water bowls that can fit on or in a travel bag quite easily. Additionally, there are bottles with lids that fold out to form a bowl for your pet to drink from.
