In the U.S. wireless Internet access is becoming so common that even a large amount of campgrounds already offer it for free. DailyTech reports:
It appears that Mother Nature isn't immune to the WiFi bug either. According to Jeff Sutherland, VP of information service for Kampgrounds of America (KOA), more people are expecting Internet connectivity in addition to their roasted marshmallows, campfire singing and sleeping bags.

"We've become a society where e-mail is as important as our phone for business and personal communications," said Sutherland."

KOA's 2007 directory shows that 379 of its campgrounds offer WiFi -- that's up from 281 in 2006. Of the campgrounds listed, 324 of them provide free Internet access.
