Very nice place except cellular service is non-existent for AT&T and Verizon and their campground wifi is marginal, at best. I can't work from the campground (which is bad- as I'm working 12-16 hour days).

I've ordered a cellular booster and really hope that helps when it gets here tomorrow.

Wow, some really nice places. Oh well, just in Michigan this year.

I may have asked this and you may have mentioned it but I can't remember either way.

What is it that you do for work?

We also work while on the road and considered a cell booster, let us know what you got and how it works please! In some places we have driven 6 miles from campground to get a signal. Not fun.

weBoost Drive 4G-X. It has given me a usable phone signal for voice and texting (AT&T), but my internet data (Verizon) is completely useless. But, we are literally on the side of a mountain.

Fortunately the campground's wifi is barely passable for what I need (lots of small transfers of data- no large files and no streaming). I've been able to work using it.

It's a normal 9-5 (well, usually). So I still have to get up for work every day and be online during normal business hours. I worked from home for the last few years, so going mobile wasn't a huge stretch for me/my work.
