About The Good Sam Club
Welcome to our little corner of the World Wide Web we call INDIANA. This site was designed to help you get better acquainted with us and provide you information about our chapters, their members, our State Organization, and the National Good Sam Club. We are one of the largest camping/recreational vehicle clubs in the world with over one million members and growing. We have over 2,300 active chapters though out the United States and Canada. These chapters support hundreds of local charities as well as participating in civic projects such as Adopt A Highway, National Clean Up Day, Habitat For Humanity. But good deeds are not all we do. We also have fun, each year thousands of Good Samer's attend gatherings we call "Samborees" which are held in most States and include activities such as seminars, entertainment, craft classes, ice cream socials, dinners, and other events which make these a festive and worthwhile piece of Americana.
Taking its name from the term "good Samaritan" The Good Sam Club came to life in 1966 when cartoonist E.C. Bilsland Jr. sketched a dark-haired character with a broad smile and a halo to personify the spirit of good Samaritan RVers. The rest is history and the Good Sam logo is one of the most recognized symbols among Campers and RVers. So if you enjoy fellowship, Camping and the RV life style you may want to come join us.
While we strive to provide you with as much information as possible here, that never the less is impossible to do with our limited space. So with that in mind enjoy your visit with us and if you would like more information about The Good Sam Club feel free to contact us or the Chapter Presidents listed here on our site. We have chapters through out the State of Indiana and we will welcome you with a smile as big as our good friend "Sam" shown above.
The Ohio Valley Region
The Ohio Valley Region was formed in 2013. There were many positive changes made by The Good Sam Club in 2013. Some of these changes were creating New Regions, creating and appointing New Regional Directors, and bringing on Ed & Laura Thor as Executive Directors. The New Regional Director position was created to help State Directors Grow their States and act as a liaison between the States and The Good Sam Club. Our new Regional Director's are Jim and Judie Frcka, the Past State Directors of Illinois.
The Ohio Valley Centry Patch
The Ohio Valley Century Patch was designed
in 2013 to help promote Samboree attendance
within our Region. You must attended 10
