Golf Cart Rental Rules
Rentals must be secured with valid credit card no cash rentals.
- Lessee MUST be 21 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license.
- Our quiet time is 11pm-8am. Cruising on golf carts during quiet hours will be not allowed, and violators could be subject to a $100 fine. Understand that we are not out to harass guests using necessary facilities, such as the bathhouses, or driving back to their site after visiting John O’s. We are targeting guests “cruising” around the campground, generally making noise, or looking for trouble.
- We understand that our guests are on vacation and want to relax with family and friends and enjoy themselves. That may include an adult beverage, and that is permitted at their site. However, open containers of alcohol are not permitted on vehicles (that includes golf carts) for it is against Ohio state law. It is true, we are private property, and we choose to uphold the state laws. Any guest caught with an open container may be subject to a $100 fine.
