We are pleased that you have taken time to visit our Website and hope you will find the site informative. The Idaho Good Sam Organization is a part of the International Good Sam Club. A part of the club's objectives is the pledge to stimulate a greater interest and development of the principles of good camping, fellowship among campers and be of aid to fellow campers anywhere throughout the world.

While browsing this site you will find information concerning the organization's monthly newsletter, learn about Good Sam Chapters in your area, the names of Chapter Presidents and how to contact them if you are interested in joining a Chapter. If you cannot locate one in your area, please contact me at and I will help you find a Chapter or assist you in forming a new Chapter. You are not limited to an interest in recreational vehicles. If you like "four wheeling" or "astronomy" for instance, a chapter can be formed with these interests in mind.

Belonging to a Good Sam Chapter is where the fun is. Most Chapters have monthly meetings and campouts during the camping season. By attending Chapter meetings, campouts, state meetings and the annual state Rally (Samboree), you will meet people who will become "extended family members". At the Rally you will be able to attend informational seminars, visit commercial vendors, attend quality entertainment and take part in many table and outdoor games.

Happy travels and camping!

Are you looking for new friends to go camping with?

Good Sam Club Chapters embrace true RV fellowship and make lasting friendships through a shared sense of community and a love for RVing. The Club has local chapters in all states and provinces. Idaho has 28 chapters scattered throughout the state and all of them are welcoming new members.

Chapters hold campouts, plan social events and organize community volunteer opportunities. Chapters generally go on outings about once a month during the camping season. The outings may be at state campgrounds or RV parks in an area they have chosen to visit. The state organization has two events each year, in the summer and fall. Visit the calendar page to see when the statewide events are scheduled.
