As the tourism and campground industries struggle to keep up with technology and consumer demand, Ocean Lakes continues to embrace it. The Camptown Center is also known as the “Wireless Zone,” free Wi-Fi service (wireless internet) is provided for up to 250 people, all they need to bring is their laptop. Guests can relax at a table with a meal, snack or beverage or do some laundry while catching up on email, work, or researching their next destination! Best of all, it’s free! “Many destinations charge for wireless service,” explains Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, “Ocean Lakes decided providing wireless service at no charge was just another step towards providing outstanding customer service. Travelers look for and are beginning to expect such amenities.”
Modem friendly phone jacks have been included at all 893 campsites providing free internet access since 1998. The Wireless Zone provides internet access for the non-camping guests. Previously, these guests had access to the web and their email via two internet kiosks. Guests were charged to use these kiosks. “So many people travel with their laptops today, compared to just a few years ago. When the service became available to us, we immediately had it installed,” explains Lance Thompson, Vice President/General Manager. “The new Camptown Center was the perfect place to introduce this new amenity.”
