Campgrounds and golf carts

I have recently become disabled, some campgrounds don't allow gas powered golf carts. Since I'm handicaped do l have any legal rights to dispute not allowing my gas powered one to be used in campgrounds ?

I think you would have to look into it... the ADA rules may apply, but imho, the noise of a gas cart may be a non-starter...
MANY campgrounds don't want ANY carts in there so you have to rent theirs...

Not to sound like a downer, I just don't see a national or state law giving you that option as a disabled person. The private campgrounds are going to set their own rules. Many state parks will have special campsites just for the disabled usually located next to the showerhouse building.

Why not invest in an electric golf cart?

Sounds like you already have a gas cart. All I can say is, my park, my rules ADA or not.

Simple enough to look up the ADA laws. Quick answer you have the right to a golf cart in a campground. My emphasis in bold underline.
-----------------------------------------
Power-Driven Mobility Devices

State and local governments (Title II) and businesses (Title III places of public accommodations) must allow persons with mobility disabilities to use other power-driven mobility devices in their facilities unless a particular device cannot be accommodated because of legitimate safety requirements.

"Other power-driven mobility device means any mobility device powered by batteries, fuel, or other engines––whether or not designed primarily for use by individuals with mobility disabilities––that is used by individuals with mobility disabilities for the purpose of locomotion, including golf cars, electronic personal assistance mobility devices (EPAMDs), such as the Segway® PT, or any mobility device designed to operate in areas without defined pedestrian routes, but that is not a wheelchair within the meaning of this section. This definition does not apply to Federal wilderness areas; wheelchairs in such areas are defined in section 508(c)(2) of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. 12207(c)(2)."

"Use of other power-driven mobility devices. A public entity shall make reasonable modifications in its policies, practices, or procedures to permit the use of other power-driven mobility devices by individuals with mobility disabilities, unless the public entity can demonstrate that the class of other power-driven mobility devices cannot be operated in accordance with legitimate safety requirements that the public entity has adopted pursuant to § 35.130(h)."

And you would be wrong.

Take me to court. Depending on the location, golf carts must have lights, turn signals, seat belts if they are used in places other than golf courses.

If you get, use one, you need to add it as a rider on your insurance. It is not covered by home or auto policy.

No they are not saying you can’t have one just not gas. You can have a electric wheel car, cricket,golf cart. Campground’s don’t want the smell or noise from gas.

Maybe the question is "why do you want to exploit your handicap status just to be a bad neighbor"? The park isn't saying you can't have a mobility aid - just that they want you to have one that is quiet and odorless and thus not offensive to others. Sounds reasonable to me. Electric carts and mobility scooters are readily available and widely used. Why not you too?

As needed at various locations - you might have an option to rent an electric cart. That makes transporting, maintenance, etc easier for you.
