From experience, last Jan 1, 2014, I was returning from Arcadia, Fl, where we had our annual New Years Party where I bought a EZ Golf Cart (Electric), stopped at Fort Wilderness, my son works at Disney for past 25 yrs., anyway, upon entry, a security type, stopped me as I was towing my F150 with the cart in it. Seems they were thinking I was renting it in their park. No more issues. Did get educated on their camping fees for the big holidays, my Jan 1 visit was $134.00 instead of the routine $85.00 (all approx. numbers, I forgot actual). Anyway, one night at that rate was enough for my taste. Never unloaded the cart, no need, the kid hauled me everywhere
We just keep living and learning I guess.

I agree completely. In Myrtle Beach they are out of control, kids that can barely reach the pedals driving them. The only downside to Disney's, Ft Wilderness are the carts. Ride bikes, get a little exercise, chat with other campers, not to mention the environmental benefits. $25.00 seems excessive but I think they are entitled to an additional fee. Many golf carts arrive on a trailer, another (2) vehicles cluttering up the already small site. The additional wear and tear on the roads and lawns, added electric, etc. Many campgrounds charge extra for more then 2 kids, for using your own air conditioner, or for a pet, why not charge for the added vehicles?

I have no issue with rules for golf carts, in fact I am annoyed with the kids riding them around. A golf cart is an easier way to get around a larger campground to get the most out of the facility and programs. I love people who own RVS talking about peace and quiet, exercise and the environment, while they burn the fuel in an RV or pulling a 30+ trailer that they sit in front of and complain about people having fun.

I agree that they should charge extra for golf carts and provide a private operator licenses for the camp ground in order to use the golf cart in that camp ground. This would keep kids from using the golf carts in the camp ground in my opinion.

Remember that the camp ground in most cases are privately own and can set their own rules and regulations. So if you do not agree with the additional charges than do not patronize them. That is what I do; if golf carts are allowed than we avoid that camp ground in most cases.
