Best Golf Cart Friendly Campgrounds in USA [51 Campsites that Allow Golf Carts]

There is nothing more exciting than visiting a campground for a vacation, whether alone or with friends and family. However, it gets more fun when you can comfortably get around the campground with a golf cart.

Golf carts help to improve your adventure, move around with friends and family, and also access different locations within the campground easily.

The hitch to having golf carts with you while you are camping is that many campgrounds in the United States don’t allow golf carts on their premises. It can be quite difficult to find campsites that offer golf carts, making it a tedious search for you.

However, we’re here to make things easier for you by giving you a list of the 15 best campgrounds for golf carts when you go on your next camping adventure. 

Campground Golf Cart Rules

USA Campground Golf Cart Rules

There are some general rules you find across virtually all golf-friendly campgrounds in the United States, and there are also some rules specific to the campsite in question.

Drivers of golf carts must obey the basic rules of driving, such as driving on the right side of the road, using turn signals, and giving wheelchairs, pedestrians, scooters, and horses the right of way. No drinking and driving also apply to golf carts on campgrounds.

The general rule is that golf cart operators need to be 21 years and above, and also possess a valid driver’s license to drive a golf cart. However, some campsites reduce the age to 18 and 16 respectively, provided the driver has a license. 

Overloading your golf cart is an offense, and all passengers must be seated, except for kids who might need to stand.

Golf cart drivers must obey the given speed limit as different campgrounds have their different rules (most campgrounds set 5mph as their speed limit)

Every campground has its golf cart usage curfews which are just after sunset. Although the time differs, it ranges between 8 pm and midnight. Some campgrounds make an exception to riding golf carts at night provided the cart has a head and taillights and a reflector sticker.

Drivers of golf carts must stay on the roads and pathways designated for the carts. Many camps don’t allow carts to be driven on the grass to avoid leaving mud on the grass.

In many cases, there are designated golf cart parking spaces at every campsite, and campers must pack their vehicles there.

There are fines for damaging any property using your golf carts. Some campgrounds even require the camper to make a security deposit in case they damage any property with their cart.

It is important to find out the rules applicable to the campsite you’re visiting because they often differ in one way or the other.
