Can you survive a camping weekend without WiFi?

Danny says no, everyone wants WiFi - or at least a phone signal!
Would it make any difference, and the reason I'm asking, if said campsite has a campers kitchen with a range and a bothy with table and armcahirs, allows (and provides) firepits, is in a dark sky park and has some great riding around and about?
I have read that it does have WiFi, but that could just be for the glamping options so would need to be checked.
Another consideration is that its' remoteness means no nearby hostelries so you'd need for bring in your food and favourite tipple and use that bothy.
Thoughts please, what are your camp site deal breakers??

I'm in without WiFi 👍🏻 if I can get a pilly. It sounds fab!

Decided, I'm defo going to this one, I'll drive up and bring my gear in case I can peg a ride with someone. I assume there will be a rideout or two?

I will also fill the boot with my trusty pal Jack n lots of goodies!

Give me a shout if you need me to bring anything with me Izzy!

If you can't post a photo of it on social media, has it really happened? 🤔

Is that not the whole point of escaping? No WiFi, no phone signal would be even better :P Can send some smoke signals if there's trouble!
And hello Izzy *waves* I've had your name mentioned as the woman in charge of the northern hooligans ;)

It’s good to reconnect with nature every now and again, you can always take photos and post them when you’re back home.

No WiFi sounds great to me, no phone signal would be even better. Back to the 80s anyone?

A weekend without Wi-Fi sounds like bliss. Even better if there was no 3/4G!

Unless WiFi zaps then little pesky midges, I see no use for it on a camping trip. 🤔

I thought WiFi was the smell you get if you're camping near cow dung 🏕️🐄🐂

Lead me to it- I go to rallies for the Craic, not to spend my time peering at a screen.

A phone signal is very handy if you have a problem in the middle of nowhere

Perhaps we need a field where the WiFi only serves half of it 🤔

To be honest, I've never given it a thought.
I wasn't really aware that WiFi was available on campsites . . . what a sheltered life I've led :)

You're probabillly to busy on the campsite enjoying yourself to feel the need to tell all and sundry about it 🤔
