Camels do store water, but not in their humps. Instead, they store it in their body fluids, including their blood. Camels can drink up to 200 liters (52.84 gallons) of water at a time. They are quick drinkers, drinking 100 liters (26.4 gallons) of water in about 10 minutes. Additionally, they are not very choosy when it comes to the water, and are known to drink brackish or salt water as well. This along with their amazing ability to minimize water loss helps them survive without drinking water.
