Golf cart or UTV


JasonBecca

Recommended Posts

My wife and I will go to full time living in a toy hauler within the next couple of years.  We will spend a lot of time in national campgrounds, state campgrounds, and boondocking.  We will spend a very limited amount of time in commercial campgrounds.  Due to her mobility issues we will need a way for us to get around the campgrounds and due a bit of exploring.  It's my understanding that UTVs are a no go.  Is that correct?  What about golf carts?  Are they allowed by most parks?  Do they have to be electric or can they be gas?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks a bunch!

Welcome to the forum.

I can't give a definite answer on all parks, But Golf Carts seem to be the standard, primarily because limited speed. I know of a modified golf cart that could exceed the speed limit big time being black flagged. Gas or electric has been OK However during spells could gas carts be grounded.

Each park would be different so you'd need to read their specific regulations.  Here is Capitol Reef Nat'l Park's take on them ..... and others.  You will, most likely, need to use your truck for transportation in national parks.  National forests and state campgrounds will all have their individual rules.   Boondocking on public lands is usually ok.

Since e-bikes seem to be accepted, you might want to consider doing an e-trike.

Thank you we actually decided to go with e bikes.  We will be purchasing 2 fucare libre 750 models.  We will have room for those, a four wheeler for when we are boon docking, and our Harley softail in the toy hauler.  Great solution.  Thanks a bunch for the idea.
