Welcome to the South Carolina Good Sam Camping Organization Website. Here you will find information
about state Good Sam activities. There is a list of South Carolina Chapters. By joining a local chapter, Good
Sam members can get the most out of being a Good Sam member. Each chapter lists a contact person for
that chapter. Feel free to contact any chapter representative for more information about that chapter's
activities. If you cannot find a chapter you can form one by contacting the State Director. You will need to
select a chapter name and elect officers. A minimum of six members is required to form a chapter.
