I think the real answer is that if you own your own business and being connected to it is that important to you then Yellowstone is probably not the place you should be.
Once again, Jalan took the words out of my mouth.
If keeping in constant contact to keep your small business running is important head to Disneyland or Washington DC. Heading to one of the most remote places in the lower 48 states is probably not your best choice. If all you needed was 20 mins worth of wi-fi to send out a few emails then heading up to the office to do so shouldn't be that large of a inconvenience that you feel the need to light up another small business owner to corporate.
In the future, if a campground advertises WiFi just assume it means WiFi is available somewhere in the park in some public space (near the office or bathhouse), not that WiFi is available in any unit throughout the entire park.

Of course it doesn't. The point is *if* it occurred and all people are saying is that we've all learned that there are always two sides, one of which is not represented in this discussion.

Some folks pound their fist until they turn pink over the slightest things. Most of us don't get upset over the truth, even when it's snarky.

Why is it rude to offer a refund and the chance to leave this god awful park that doesn't have WiFi to every site?

As I read it from the OP, I was under the impression the guy was rude. I might be wrong. I just hate rude and there is plenty out there at the RV parks.

X2...as in anything in life, you should expect the unexpected and either be ready to deal with it, or not let it get in the way of enjoying your original plans. If your business is that important, and you need to use your computer while on vacation or traveling, yes you should have invested in a personal Wifi like others of us have. It's called planning, and when you don't plan it's not anyone else's problem but your own. Complaining about Wifi anywhere is really nit picking, and there are a lot of worse things that could have happened.

Wonder if park manager was the only one that was rude.

Well there's always two sides to the story, and I think it was post #44 that maybe steers you in the right direction.

Don't you just wonder how folks years ago who owned their own business dealt with traveling?

When we first started full-timing we had no cell phone and definitely no internet. We survived just fine.

Park wifi is not meant to conduct business, including home financial stuff. It's not meant for streaming movies. The systems are too expensive for that. Typically campground wifi is meant for emails and quick searches.

If you need access for things like that, supply your own. That's what the majority of people do nowadays.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
