You want electric for sure.

I'm in the market and I'm in NC as well. There's a guy in Denton that advertises on CL a lot. He has refurbished units with some customization and they usually run from 3-4k. When I get serious I'm going to ride down and take a look at his inventory.

Here's a link to a custom example with new batteries for 4k

Why do they say "Most only allow electric golf carts" ? I'm curious is why I ask. I haven't yet tried to take or use my gas cart to a campground, but I will eventually. Why the fuss over gas/electric? I've been to many campgrounds and seen both, no restrictions. Is it a western state thing?

The only campground I've been to that "allows" gas carts is Fort Wilderness at Disney World. They say only electric but gas carts are common.

Places like Ocean Lakes and Willow Tree at Myrtle Beach are fairly strict on electric only.

By the way. $4000 will get you a decent used cart. Most likely a private seller if you want something with a lift kit, etc.

They're all good brands but I prefer the Club Car Precedent. Its fairly fast stock and aluminum frame. That means no rust from trips to the beach.

Any idea why they restrict it to electric? I've never been a fan of Myrtle beach, so that wont be an issue for me.

My guess is noise. You'd think they wouldn't mind because gas doesn't cost them extra electricity since you'd be charging most nights at the campground.

This is ours at Fort Wilderness two years ago. Bought it for $5000 from a dealer in eastern NC.

This idea of tooling around my neighborhood on a golf cart is getting more $$$ by the minute I may have to re-think this great idea I have I may ended up just buying a new pair of Nikes and continue walking
No insurance required for this type cart. It's not considered a golf cart. Hopefully you will be able to check them out at my rally as I have contacted a dealer to display models. Later RJD

Insurance is recommended no matter the size of golf cart, you can still hit a child in a campground; The crickett is about 3/4 the size of a regular golf cart and only has 1 or 2 12 volt batteries, so won't run nearly as long as regular cart; I have gas and camp, and us it.. The campgrounds I asked at told me they specify electric only as a way to excluse 4 wheeler, 3 wheelers, SxS, etc. and that as long as it was a 'real' golf cart, no problem

And oh yeah, insurance thru State farm for lib. and theft only coust me $65/year here in La.

X2 on the Cricket. I have the SX3 version and it's great! Carries up to 4 people (depending on weight). It has 3 12volt batteries, a built in battery charger, and will go about 36hr between charges. Great around the campgrounds and neighborhood. It also breaks down/collapses enough to fit in the back of my Jeep Liberty. A new one will cost you around $4500 complete with canopy and ramps. I would definitely check it out.
