I recalls the guide showing water there, but I didnt see it or what form it was in. It wasnt in the restrooms, they were pit toilets.
I remember having about 1L getting there, and drinking most of that, discarding trash, etc. I had maybe 1/3 liter left when I left there, picked more up a little ways down the trail.

Just north of Woody gAp is a small side trail to the left. A spring is a short distance down the trail
