Campgrounds are notorious for delivering a poor Wi-Fi experience. There are good reasons for that. Weather conditions, storm and winter equipment damage, trees blocking signal and local Internet outages are some of what we have to contend with.
We now have the highest quality and newest technology available for outdoor high speed Wi-Fi. This gives you several options. Our new Wi-Fi system covers much of the park*, our Park Store, our new Dog Park (coming soon!) and all of our cabins (although you may need to be outside in some locations).
If this new system is successful, we are considering doubling the number of access points in the future and making sure that all of our sites are covered. That will depend on the number of campers that use it and how well it works for us all.
* Wi-Fi at individual sites and cabins is not guaranteed, although we are making an effort to get Wi-Fi to as many sites as possible. To see where Wi-Fi coverage is expected to work best, see the embedded Wi-Fi coverage map below.
Free Wi-Fi Internet Access
Yes, we will still have FREE internet available inside our park store.
Also, each guest will be allowed to sign in and get 30 minutes of FREE internet. This will let you know how well the connection works at your site. Depending on your location, the connection may vary. Some sites and cabins may have to go outdoors for a good experience. The embedded Wi-Fi coverage map below (coming soon) shows what areas can expect Wi-Fi.
There are a few areas without Wi-Fi (for instance much of the Supersaver area). Also, sometimes a node may go down temporarily in your area. We do not expect this to happen much, as our entire system will be brand new this year. Even though we look forward to a new level of dependability and speed with this new installation, we don't guarantee Internet access.
Aside from Mother Nature and technical glitches, there are occasionally outages with our Internet provider, and in those cases, everyone in the area is down. If you have a desperate need for Internet and there is an outage, be sure to let us know and we will do our best to figure something out for you, even if, worst case, it involves letting you know where free Internet is available in town.
If you find the Wi-Fi works well and your 30 minutes is up, there is a small fee (probably $2 or $3 a day) for 24 hours of "basic internet." "Basic Wi-Fi" is suitable for doing e-mail, Facebook, and web surfing. You can purchase this access directly online, or from the camp office (coupon). This "basic" connection won't support streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube. If you don't have good signal at your location, don't purchase "Basic Wi-Fi" as, of course, it won't work.
With this new technology, if it lives up to its promise, we hope to give our guests one of the best campground Internet experiences available anywhere!
Fingers crossed everyone!
