Good Sam Club
Organization of RV owners
For the warehouse store chain, see Sam's Club.
The Good Sam Club is an international organization of recreational vehicle (RV) owners and the largest organization of RV owners in the world. It is focused upon making RVing safer and more enjoyable, and saving members money through club-endorsed benefits and services. It states that it has over 2.185 million members. It was founded in 1966, and is currently owned by the Good Sam Enterprises. The organization is affiliated with RV parks and campgrounds.
Credited as founder of the Good Sam Club is Art Rouse, founder of TL Enterprises, a California-based publishing company responsible for Trailer Life magazine and MotorHome magazine. Rouse and his two sons acquired the organization in 1968 and further developed member benefits and RV-related services for which the club is known. Rouse sold TL Enterprises in the 1980s and died on June 19, 2007 following head injuries suffered as a result of a fall, at 89 years old.
Good Sam Club is based in Englewood, Colorado. The organization is currently owned by the Good Sam Enterprises, which also owns Camping World (an American corporation specializing in selling parts and service for recreational vehicles and supplies for camping), Coast to Coast Resorts, Trailer Life Publications, MotorHome Publications and the Good Sam RV Travel Guide & Campground Directory. The organization also offers additional services such as roadside assistance, RV insurance and RV extended warranties for additional fees.
In 1985, the club had over 450,000 members, and today has over 2.185 million members.
The club's name comes from the Bibleparable of the Good Samaritan, which tells of a traveler from the region of Samaria who helped a person along the road who had been robbed and beaten.
RV park affiliations
In 2017, there were over 2,100 RV parks and campgrounds affiliated with the Good Sam organization in which club members receive a 10% discount on the nightly rate for staying in their parks. These RV parks have to meet a minimum standard of services and appearance to be considered for association.
Good Sam also publishes information to help members find parks that provide stated levels of services.
The club sponsored the NASCARSprint Cup Series race Good Sam Club 500 at Talladega Superspeedway and the Camping World Truck Series' Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 at Rockingham Speedway.

Improvement and bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
App is Worthless
I see no difference between Good Sam parks and others. I have yet to find out how to post comments about problems with Good Sam parks. I can’t access my account. I joined Good Sam months ago and was given a temporary card and that I would receive a permanent one in the mail. That never happened. I see no benefit to us to be Good Sam members. I can get all the same discounts in other ways. We are currently in a Good Sam park that has trains (with train whistles) that run all night long making it hard to sleep. The cable TV does not work properly and I can find no one who has ANY idea what to do. The lady in the office doesn’t have a clue and has no idea who to contact. I talked to another camper who has been here for two weeks and the problems have been present all that time…they are apparently ongoing issues. WHY is there no mention of these issues on the app? I can’t figure out how to get one posted. Good Sam rates this park highly? I’ve run into these kinds of issues with Good Sam parks before. What dies it mean to be a Good Sam park? Apparently nothing.
Hello, we understand this frustration as a Good Sam member. Access to your membership is a high priority feature that we are currently working on. Please keep a look out for this awesome upgrade soon.
App could be better
Right now the application is somewhat useless with it just shutting off when attempting to search for a campground. The website is working When the app is working we can find nearby sites and their phone numbers, but have to have our good Sam card out when we call for a reservation at a park listed as a Good Sam, can’t make a reservation from the app, some sites didn’t show as Good Sam in the app, but turned out to be Good Sam when we arrived and had already made reservations by phone and paid full price. And that was after the app wouldn’t come up until it allegedly updated with the latest information before loading. It also doesn’t show current reservations at Good Sam parks, previously made.
It would be nice to easily make reservations on the fly from the app, without having to go into individual websites and calling each RV park. And don’t say it’s not doable, the other guys do have that capability
This is a terrible app. Don’t get it
I cannot even find out how to log in to my account from anyplace on the interface. There is no “help” available. I just want o go to the trip planner and work on my trip and there is no way to get there. I will be dumping the app and canceling my membership as soon as they finally get around to sending me confirmation of my membership so I can do that. I joined and THEN I find out that it will take 2 weeks TWO WEEKS to get my cards to me. Where are these people living - back in the 20th century I’m guessing - maybe somewhere around 1950 or so. Petra26And just to add some frosting to this s sandwich the view doesn’t auto-rotate on my iPad. Hello - maps usually go right to left or vice verse, not top to bottom. Awful in all respects, just ... awful.

I feel your eyes on me and I am shy. I continue my erotic massage, the ass spreads, and I touch the anus. I lightly fiddle with the hole and, to my surprise, my finger gets inside.
