Should Wireless Internet Be Installed at Lake Mead NRA?

Lake Mead Campground Near Boulder City, NevadaRemember when your excuse for not returning emails and texts on the weekend was that you were out in the middle of Lake Mead National Recreation Area and regretfully, you just COULDN’T get service out there? Hah … those days may be over (so we’ll have to work on a new lie together) because the National Park Service sent out a news release that they are:

Seeking public comment on a project that would add wireless internet infrastructure to developed areas within Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The park is developing a five-year contract that would allow a business to provide wireless internet access at reasonable rates within select areas of the park to improve and modernize the visitor experience.

Antennas will need to be installed within the park to provide the service. Infrastructure will be confined to pre-existing structures and buildings within campgrounds, marinas, employee housing areas and concessioner facilities.

This project has the potential to impact historic structures and campgrounds. The campgrounds at Boulder Beach, Cottonwood Cove, Echo Bay, Katherine Landing and Temple Bar were constructed between the 1940s and the 1960s and are considered historic. Every effort will be made to ensure the visibility of equipment is minimal to visitors and that it will not impact the historic character of the campgrounds.

The public is encouraged to comment on the proposed project. Feedback will be accepted through April 2 both online at http://go.nps.gov/lakewifi and via U.S. mail at: Lake Mead National Recreation Area Superintendent, Attention: Proposed Wi-Fi Project, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, Nevada 89005.
