Looking to buy a electric scooter for traveling around the camp ground. Must be light weight and very quiet running. Anyone here use a electric scooter? What brands would you recommend?

Just a heads up on what could be a problem. One of our members tooled around in one of these in a state park here in OR. Pretty slick, but he was unexpectedly told to cease and desist using it in the campground. Against the rules at least there. You might survey your likely camping venues to prevent getting something and suddenly realize that you can't use it.

We have the some scooters you have pictured. They are great, we have no problems with them and they will go about 15 to 20 mph and I am not a light weight. Will last about 6 to 7 miles per charge. They are not real light but fold up and the steering arm is used as a handle. The seat is not good and we bought new ones. Check with your local police if you can ride them on the streets, our police do not give us any problems.

They are too cool, so are the electric bicycles.
BUT the wife says we should be WALKING in the campgrounds for healthy reasons.
I HATE healthy reasons............
Alas. Pete walks...

While in Washington State at the Washington Gathering the park had a sign posted that all motorized devices required a disability permit.

Corp of Engineer Campgrounds in Mississippi will not allow any motorized vehicle (electric or otherwise) to be driven on campground roads unless it is also registered and permitted to drive/ride on city streets. The only exception is with a permit for the disabled.

Hmm...well, we have taken our scooter to Piney Grove COE campground in MS several times & no one said anything to us about it. Maybe we look like we need help? It really comes in handy when we have a site that's a little farther from the bath house!

It doesn't have lights, so we only use it in daytime. It's rated to carry 225 lbs. It doesn't handle hills very well but we don't take it to campgrounds that are on steep hills. It does just fine on more gradual slopes. We love it!

Here's the scooter at Piney Grove:
