Another alternative form of transportation is this.

Electric Bike | Electric Bicycles | Pedego Electric Bikes

We had the opportunity to ride one of these and it is the best of both worlds! A 6 sped bike with an electric engine when you need to go UP that 6% grade

Other than the fact that they are electric, I have never really "gotten" why folks have golf carts (unless you are going to the golf course ) I'd rather be driving one of these babies! (and you can take it to town for groceries to boot!)

I think just like everything these days, golf carts have a place as long as they are used correctly and by responsible adults. I know the beeping of a golf cart backing up always tends to annoy me after 11:00 PM or before 8:00 AM and watching a load of kids have a cart race around expensive RV's and trucks is just crazy. I think my single biggest problem with them is that it's usually CG employees that I see speeding on them!

It is becoming a little too much, I agree. Small campgrounds, seasonals, etc. and even the larger "resort" styles with kids just "cruising" to kill time kinda kills the family experience. I understand the need if there's a need, but just dragging all your stuff form your house and setting it up at your campsite like you're opening a mini-Cabellas under your awning is becoming a trending eyesore.

We've rented golf carts at these parks Fort Wilderness Disney and a couple of Gulf Coast rv parks in Texas for beach access. They do make things convenient when automobile parking around the property is limited like at Disney. Unfortunately golf carts coming to campgrounds doesn't look like it's going away. I try not to let it bother me too much.

We are all for golf carts but only use them at one campground. It is just plain fun to cruse around meeting new people & seeing what and how others campsites are set up........

Having said that when you are at a campground that is 310 acres and has nearly a mile of ocean front has nearly 900 camp sites and 2000 permanent beach houses it just makes sense. We bought our golf cart as at $300 a week to rent one, we paid for itself in less than 2 years. When your kids rent a house & it is a mile away inside the campground, when you carry tons of chairs etc to the beach, traveling and parking through the campground is just easier on a cart than a car.

Did I mention it is just fun to cruse ..........

But sometime a golf cart makes more sense than trying to drive a big duelly around a tight 300 acre campground. I realize this is not for everyone..........
