View your posting in microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless
entitled "Wireless outdoors".
Dedicated ethernet connections means routers with ports for every
user AND (as defined by the app note in that other newsgroup) a
protector for every wire in each cable to each user. And each cable
must be exterior grade.
Wireless APs are your best solution. With additional wiring so that
more APs may be installed, if load demands, by scattering more APs
throughout the campground.
Don't waste money on the cheap from tigerdirect. Good reasons why
better equipment is cheaper by costing more money. Your AP should
also include 802.11N (not just B & G).
Increasing AP power will do little if the WiFi user's power is also
not increased. Wifi is a bidirectional conversation. Increasing
power on one side does not mean the other side can be heard.
If they really want internet provided, then a narrow (4 inch) trench
across the road to install multiple pipes (one for the internet –
others for future reasons – electric or other) is trivial and easily
