FoxFi is part of PDANet. It only supports Android, but they have a PDANet for Apple here PdaNet -- Use your iPhone as a Wireless Router for your PC/Mac But it requires jailbreaking your phone.

You can use it to create a wireless hotspot, but I use it mostly in the USB mode as it keeps your phone battery charged up that way. It cost like $20 (one time) and it works pretty good. In fact, I stay at a certain hotel near on of our plants, and their in-house wifi is horrible. If I want to watch something on netflix, I use my phone, with the USB tether to my laptop. I did try the wifi hotspot once or twice, it works pretty good.

I cannot speak to how well it works on an Iphone, but I am very pleased with the Android version.

I found this website from another thread, I felt it was very thorough and informative, walks you through the setup, provides links on what to purchase, etc. Very helpful!

I used this when I lived in a large townhouse and our WiFi signal didn't reach our home office space in the basement:

I used the directional panel antenna attachment and as long as I angled it toward our router it gave us about the same signal strength speeds (per as if the laptop were in the same room as the router. If you can determine where the source of the wifi is on the campground this would be a good solution.
