Due to the national parks being in a remote location, cell phone reception and internet are very limited and likely will not be available while exploring. In common areas, cell phone service may be available depending on your carrier and the location. This experience is best for those who want to disconnect and enjoy the great outdoors!
Due to the remote nature of our locations, cell reception varies throughout the park depending on your provider and plan, and Wi-Fi may be much slower than you’re accustomed to. Free Wi-Fi is available in common areas and you will likely be able to share your pictures when on Wi-Fi, if available. You can also share your experience using #XanterraLife and #LiveWorkExplore!
