Join A Good Sam Chapter And Join The Fun!
We have been having fun together for 38 years!

You are surely missing out on a great Club benefit if you are not part of a local Good Sam chapter. Chapters are groups of members who like to camp together; but camping is just part of the fun. The camaraderie and friendships often grow into an extended part of your family.

Many chapters just enjoy spending time with each other at local camp outs or traveling in caravans together. The pleasure most members receive from the various get–togethers is the sense of sharing a common interest, swapping travel adventures and keeping one another posted on the best routes to their RVing destinations.

Community service is another aspect many chapter memberships offer. While having fun, chapters may participate in local civic events and fund raisers, for such organizations as Dogs for the Deaf, Ronald MacDonald House, Special Olympics, and Make a Wish Foundation, just to name a few.

You will find that joining a chapter is not only enjoyable, but another chance for you to use your Good Sam Club membership to its full extent. So join our chapter family and start enjoying more wonderful camping experiences.

Celebrate Camping in WV
The Good Sams Way

RV Rally = Big Camp Out

Everywhere you go camping--pass out Good Sams Applications; RV Rally Applications and tell folks about the WVGS and the WVGS RV Rally. Place the info in the campground office and on each of you do this whenever and wherever you camp. Its is one of the best ways to spread the good word about WVGS. We aren't the biggest and fanciest RV Rally around--but we are the most fun and the friendliest. Come to the RV Rally and celebrate camping in WV--the Good Sams Way.
