Whenever we rented RVs, we we would see people using golf carts to get around the campgrounds. We didn't think much about it, though, until we stayed at a cabin at Fort Wilderness many years later and they wouldn't allow cars in many places. Instead, we had to rent a golf cart for $48/day.
Having a golf cart would certainly be a luxury, and we wondered how much we would use it. After all, we have bikes we enjoy riding and we like to get out and walk. But if you're staying in a campground for more than a few days, it would be nice to have a cart to run up to the store, or just take a drive through the campground at night. In the larger campgrounds or resorts, I can see where it would really be nice to have one.
Golf carts can be pretty big, though, and I wasn't sure how we would carry one once we bought our motorhome. We would have a tow vehicle, but there was no apparent place to carry a cart.
Buying something like a Cricket cost a bundle, though, when you add up the cost of the cart and it accessories. The cart itself is over $3000, and then you have to add a cover (for transport), rails (to load it in the truck), and a top (to keep out the sun). By the time I priced out what I wanted for a Cricket, it was something over $4700.

Since we plan to spend more than one month every year at Fort Wilderness, we'll probably get a golf cart. We'll need the ramp (to get it in the truck), a top and the cover so that it'll be covered up when we're transporting it. But I think we'll be very, very glad we have it.
