I was at a rv park on lake chatuagua NY. and to walk from my boat slip to the full hookup site was 15 min. up hill so I asked about a golf cart rental. rental was 65.00 a day which had to be from 6pm to 5pm next day so fri evening to sun morning 130.00 plus tax .My experience is that this is a pretty common charge for a cart .Do they know enterprise will rent me a new compact car for 49.00 a day ,I can pick the hours, and they will pick me up. Can anyone explain why golf carts are so valuable, what does one cost. does the rental include liability ins. or what /Just wondering
by the way I walked exercise is good.

I think it is Lakewood or Lakeland, Something like that. anyway it starts with Lake. Actually it is a really great place. I have checked out other places there and I think it is the nicest.

Go ahead and share the name of that place so I can cross it off the list.

The law of supply and demand
You can rent a car from Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, Rent a wreck and others

You can only rent the golf car from the park.

rental costs are high for a golf cart 🙂 I sure don't like those prices!

we opted for a toyhauler cause we love a golf cart on our trips. Where I can use them, it comes along.

all good points on the board. It is priced to what the people will pay, and the people pay it 🙂

Golf carts have certainly become over-valued and overpriced in the last several years. I too have been shocked at their pricing. The rental price quoted by the OP is higher than we've seen, but we're in totally different regions so...
In hilly areas as referenced by the OP, gas powered golf carts should be used. I would be wary of renting/using a battery powered cart if you're going to be encountering lots of hills. You won't get nearly as much battery life in those conditions.

Try and park a rental car in the spot the Golf Cart will fit. its not just about the size but also the convience! Imagine 50 or so rental cars zipping around a campground and taking up all the parking spots.

If the people will pay it then that's what they'll charge.

Yeeeeeeeeehup.
Andddd you don't wanna know what it costs me to rent a car to go camping;).

As to whether the rental includes insurance I think you would be best served to ask the company you are renting from:).
