I've decided to join one of these two organizations and am not sure which one is the better deal. Any thoughts or experiences to help me decide? I generally camp mid-week for 2-3 nights at a time and only from about November until May (if that matters). No kids, no pets. There is a significant difference in membership fee ($19 vs $44) but perhaps that is justified by discounts. I believe that I would mostly use the membership for reduced camping fees rather than insurance or routing or technical assistance.

Thanks in advance. I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered; I tried to search for it, but since "Sam"--a vital part of the query--has fewer than 4 characters, the search was invalid.

Just FYI, if you are a veteran you can get your Good Sam membership for free! I did it at Camping World, just took in my DD214. You'll have to do it yearly, though. Can't pay a little and extend or go to lifetime membership from the Veterans' Membership. Don't know if PPA has a similar program or not. Anyone?

I was excited to read this, as we are getting ready to renew our membership. We just called the Camping World in Winter Garden, FL and they said, nope, no free yearly memberships for veterans. The only thing they offer is a half-off lifetime membership for veterans.

Is this something regional, not offered by all Camping Worlds? Or did we just get some dodo who didn't know what she was talking about?

Not meaning to Hijack this thread, but this is the info from the Good Sam Club website concerning Military members:

How can I take advantage of the free membership for active military?
Active military personnel receive a complimentary Club membership. It's our way of saluting and thanking our soldiers for the service they provide to our country.

Active military personnel can activate their complimentary membership by showing their military ID at any Camping World SuperCenter nationwide or by calling Member Services at 866-205-7451.

Free membership must be activated by the person whose name appears on the active military ID. The free membership term is based on the number of years left on the service member’s military ID card. If the service member is already a member of the Good Sam Club, then we will simply extend their membership to match the term on the military ID card.


Do veterans receive a discount?
Yes, veterans are eligible for Life Membership Discounts. Qualifying members who want to take advantage of this pricing should visit their local Camping World SuperCenter or call Member Services at 866-205-7451. Please note that proof of qualifications may be required on select upgrade terms.

I am a Passport America member and a Good Sam member...I take advantage of Passport America whenever I can. I've already saved more this year than what I pay for an annual membership.
