The objective of a Campground Wireless hotspot equipment package is to provide your campground with a strong, reliable signal, that reaches the perimeter of your park. High power 802.11N, or 802.11AC Wi-Fi access points are used, in specific areas in order to provide the customer, using their Wi-Fi enabled devices found in notebook computers, PDA’s, and smartphones, Ipad Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi phones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices, with a reliable connection to the internet. Once the wireless network hotspot equipment is installed, the campground now has the option to provide a free complimentary service or an optional paid Wi-Fi service to give your customers who visit the campground options of connecting to the wireless network. Typically, Campground WiFi networks do not charge customers for WiFi access, as this service has become expected when staying at a campground. If you do choose to charge for internet access, an optional hotspot gateway can be added to the campground wifi setup at anytime, and GNS Wireless can assist in configuration and installation.

Campground WiFi signal boosters will allow you to extend the range beyond the 100ft. your existing wireless N router is providing. However, not only will you want to upgrade the outdoor wireless access points, you want to make sure the router you choose can support the same increased work load that the wireless access points can handle. Another words, if you upgrade your campground wifi setup to broadcast an extra 500ft. in all directions, you are now going to have more client devices on the wireless network. The increased usage on a typical wireless N router will most likely fail, or at the very minimum lock up, during peak usage times such as morning and after work. To prevent this, we carry a few basic, but reliable routers that are more commercial grade, and have the ability to also control bandwidth as your wireless network grows.
Commercial Grade Routers
An better quality router will not only stablize your campground wifi setup, increase security and reliability but will also allow you to set a maximum upload and download speed for all guests and devices connected to the wireless network. This will prevent any single user or device from “hogging” all available bandwidth.
- Cisco RV042 -This 4 port router has the ability to control bandwidth, and will support a maximum of 250 devices in its DHCP table.
- TP-Link TL-ER5120 -This 4 port router will control bandwidth, and allow you to support larger networks of up to 1000 devices in its DHCP table.
Campground WiFi Signal Extenders
Most campgrounds that have trees, or other obstructions in the park, and have an area of more than 1 acre will need a wifi booster, or campground wifi extender. Basically this means you will use the bath house, or maintenance shop on the property (power required), and install another high power access point. We will configure this access point to “repeat”, or “boost” the signal coming from the main office. Typically this is done by means of a wireless repeater, or for faster, higher quality results, we connect these remote locations using a wireless bridge kit. Either way, for larger coverage areas where more then 1 access point is needed for good wifi service, a campground wifi booster is used.
