i think you will need a router, and a few wifi signal repeater,
and spread the wifi signal repeater troughout the park.

if you can't find something good enough for outdoor use, make sure to built some waterproof housing for it.

You will have to install them in a pole/box style fashion due to weather and UL standards.

I would get with your county's building inspectors to find the right way to proceed to make sure its up to code.

HERE is a good list of extenders. I would recommend going to The home depot or Lowes to find a waterproof box in the electrical section that would accomidate the range extender you choose. I would mount each on 4x4 poles with their own power source. You will want to make sure the box you choose is also lockable cause RV'rs might want to take one home LOL

You may also get away with some high gain coax cable with water proof antennas.

Kind like THIS

You must remember, most routers have only two antennas so you would need either cheap access points with these antennas to reproduce the signal two more times.

if the extender range is 300feet, well, you need one every 300feet.

What you are talking about is a large project that needs alot of planning and funds. Your best bet is to get a full scale map of your RV park and start labeling the areas of importance to wifi. Then you will need to figure out how you will power them and get them back to the main router.

Your biggest challenge will not be hardware. Your biggest challenge will be finding a legal way share a connection between all those different residences. Can't tell where you are located by your sig, but here in Ohio, the companies that provide Internet services are powerful enough that they got our legislature to make it a felony to share service between residences a few years back. Okay, no problem you say, because you won't get caught. Well...when you are sharing between so many people, all it takes is for one disgruntled resident with a bone to pick to spill the beans, and then the game is over.

So, in my opinion, first thing you want to find out is if your plan is legal in your area, and if it isn't, how you can go about getting a level of service that you can share, if at all.

All you need is a business account/connection at most. How do you think hotels, condo's and coffee shops handle it.

Here is the park lay out http://www.driftcreeklandingrv.com/page3.html This is what I am working with . The spaces are all numbered the rest are not needed ( T2 -T5 are tent sites . ) I wish there was an easy way to do this . Power is not an issue poles are not an issue .

This is a business and there are WiFi business accounts out there for EVERY RV park in the nation .

I didn't say it wasn't legal. I just said to make sure that you are purchasing a level of service that allows you to share among the residents. You didn't claim one way or the other what class of service you are dealing with. That will likely affect the type of hardware you need to use for this project. Standard consumer grade hardware likely won't cut it--not able to handle the traffic and/or simultaneous connections that you will likely need.

Yes I did . This is for an RV park . People want WiFi this will be an added free service that my park will offer it people . But I have to get every thing I need lined up now . This is going to happen very soon . The Owners are Miltie millionaires I do not think that it matters to them how much it costs it just has to be done . Though I care the more I save them the more I make . See I do not want this to cost so much that they look at me and say NO . I would say the best budget I have and that I would want to keep to is about 1 thousand dollars .
