I have ATT and was very, very surprised to find that I am not roaming in most part of the campground. I was able to call, text and use data at my campsite, and some part of the clubhouse. If I move closer to the campground entrance, I got connected to Roger and roaming. Someone must have a very good booster around me...

AT&T's towers could be very close - no booster needed. It is common in border towns to get coverage from the other side of the border, and with the terrain around Osoyoos reception can vary a lot over small differences. For me this has been the opposite problem: despite being in Canada I get connected to a U.S. tower, accidentally "roaming", so I set my device to lock out other networks.
