To BE a KOA campground they must provide a certain level of service and as far as their web site states; free WiFi and free pet acceptance is on the list.

KOA's Charging for WIFI

They charged us for WIFI in 2010 at the KOA Fancy Gap, Virginia ; KOA South Point, South Carolina ; KOA Orlando, Florida ; and KOA Maderia Beach, Florida. These are all of the KOA's we stayed at over a two month period.
It is good to hear they do not charge for WIFI at all KOA's, maybe it is like other things in this business, they will charge where they can and not receive complaints. When I complained to head office they quickly made it free at the Maderia Beach site for the month of April this year.
Have a great season, RVing !!!!!!!!
Regards, Ken

I could not agree more, however being in the Business Development side of sales and working from a home office I have discovered that I can actually camp more, at least the kids can, and still get my work done at KOA's and the boss is non the wiser.

I have stayed at KOA's in the past and they are normally nice places, but No WiFi while camping at my site please. Cell phone yes, computer NO! Fishing yes, hiking yes, biking yes, etc. We have a emergency weather radio/GPS/ and cells. Enough elctronics already being loaded into the camper, DVD player, TV, Nintendo's ETC. I have to draw the line somewhere. After all we are going camping not surfing.

Skip the WiFi and have a cold beer next to the camp fire.

WIFI good, cell phone bad when you have roaming charges from another country. Google phone is free to call anywhere in North America (although I have to keep my Blackberry on 24/7 for work regardless of where in the world I am) and so is checking emails via wifi. We don't do TV or satellite but do bring along some movies to watch later in the evening and when the weather turns bad. But everyone has their ideas as to what works and what dosen't.

wifi bad, wireless card with booster antenna good! When you have a 13 year old daughter already taking online classes for computer programming, the lap top goes every where! We also have a lot of family games on there that are great for rain outs. We travel to a lot of new race tracks and the laptop has helped us more then once find places to camp when the track is to muddy. I wouldn't ever leave the pc at home.

We camped at a KOA in Florida that advertised free Wi-Fi but when we got there it had changed ownership and were charging for a time card that let you on. It wasn`t a problem as we only use it to get e-mail or use a Magic Jack to phone back to Canada so we would just go to a Bob Evans (way to big of portions) and use their`s or find an unsecured site in a residential area. A lot of U.S. restaurants have free Wi-Fi that can be tapped into from the street or parking lot. Please don`t overuse it or abuse it as it provides a great service for those of us who are travelling far from home. Thanks to those commercial, public (library) and even private sites that do let us use their time which they have paid for. Old Guys
