Yes, I know, this is an issue previously debated and the general comments in answer were that RV Resort should or should not have to provide Internet facilities.
It is several years that I am spending my winter in Florida, in a resort, the campground is not bed a little up in cost per month but promoting several facilities (i.e. swimming pool , tennis, camp for children, SPA and internet).
Almost every thing is in line with the facilities advertised except for the internet which is provided upon payment but always available at the reception and at some sides of the resort.
My question is, is the company making an improper advertising promoting internet facilities without specifying that it is not available at every site ?
Making an analysis of this issue, I am bivalent in interpreting the internet promotion since, yes it is there but not reachable from your RV site.
Is this a misleading promotion or ???
Your opinion would be greatly appreciated

Many times at CG's the problem is not seeing the wifi access point but having enough power to transmit back to it. Many people report that this problem is actually worse with newer laptops in which manufacturers have sacrificed wifi power in return for longer battery life. A better antenna can help somewhat, but what is really needed is increased transmit power.

Specialized routers with "Wi-Fi as WAN" capability are produced by companies such as WiFiRanger and Cradlepoint. Coupled with external antennas and transmit power in excess of 500 mW they are capable of connecting with almost any wifi situation they encounter.

Recently we were at a CG at which the manager told us "you'll never connect to the wifi at your site." Well, we had no problem which was nice since this was in Death Valley where we had no cell phone service and some connectivity was better than none at all. All it takes is the right hardware.
