Hi. I haven't posted in a while since we sold our fifth wheel and have taken a pause from the RV lifestyle. We are looking into the possibility of becoming "snowbirds" spending summers in Vermont and winters in Florida. Ideally we would like to find a campground that has the ability to access stores (such as grocery store or Walmart etc.) with a golf cart. Thanks for any input.

Thousand Trails in Clermont, (Orlando) is within cart distance to a Publix grocery store which also has a pharmacy. In the same plaza are a couple of small restaurants. It is on Rt27 and a membership in Thousand Trails camping club allows you to stay there free for two weeks then move for a week, then stay for two weeks free. May be worth checking into.

Blueberry Hill RV resort in Bushnell Fl. right beside Walmart. Close to I75 though. Never been there but have been in the Walmart and Wendy's at the exit and noticed it. Looks like there're packed in pretty tight and not much shade, but that's been about 4-5 years ago.

Gulf Air RV in Fort Meyers is next door to a Walmart, with a restaurant on the Walmart pad.

Publix is right across the main highway, about 1/4 mile, but I haven't seen golf carts there.

The highway might have something to do with it. I don't know of any state that allows golf carts on highways.

I never thought of Ft Myers as being in central florida. Have to rethink my geography.

Golf Cart Statute in Florida

While perhaps OK in a campground, they may not be on roads outside the campground. The only cart friendly community I can think of is The Villages, but that's a residential community not a CG.

Sun City Center also legally allows use of golf carts on the community streets. many places throughout the state also tolerate them.... by that I mean that use is common place and restrictions are not enforced. There is also the ability to license a golf cart as a low speed vehicle and that allows you to drive it on the street, again , with certain restrictions... Section 320.01(41), Florida Statutes
Here's a pretty good summary.... Golf Carts & LSV
