We'd use the one in Saginaw, but I think that's the only one heading north.

If you go up 127 like you are going to My Pleasant, there is one just north of I69

Sorry it is on 66 just north of I69. There is another one at the I69/I96 interchange on Grand River

In the past 7 months of full-time camping, we've saved $195 in camping fees & Camping World discounts using Good Sam, $34 using Escapees, & a whopping $728 using Passport America!

When I joined GS, I wrote them a letter stating I wanted to "OPT out" of all direct marketing as I had heard they trash your mailbox relentlessly. To date, I have received NO advertising whatsoever from them. I get the magazine and that's it. Their privacy policy says they honor an OPT out request for 3 years then you have to renew it. I highly recommend this tactic!

Right-on Dan. We pretty-much do things the same way you mention and we get buried in Good Sam mailings (getting tired of that). Do like CW and there mag.

The best thing is that you get to stick one of those cool looking Sam's Club stickers on the back of your RV. You ain't hangin' with the right crowd if you don't have one.

DW switched us to Good Sam last year after our Coachnet ran out. She (a management acct.) did extensive due diligence comparisons, including online reviews, and figured Sam's was the best way to go. We have medical coverage with a different carrier tho.

Lol, when I was young, I thought folks with those stickers were all lame old farts and I wouldn't have ever dreamed of owning an RV, even if given one. Now, a couple of months away from 60, I discovered that camping with an RV is serious ship and a LOT of fun. Nothing else is more important now. Things sure do change...... Proud to have a Sam's Club sticker on our TT.

Later - gotta run, just heading out the door to the earlybird RV show near us. Woohoo!!

Here in Texas, the two Flying-J's I looked at were about 10 higher than other places, so the meager discount was just a joke.

I have a Life Membership with Good Sam's and have used it a lot, all the way from Pennsylvania to Alaska and through out Canada. The best part of Good Sam's is their website which helps you plan trips and find campgrounds. Their rating system gives you a very good scale with which to judge the campgrounds on. We also took out their road side assistance and needed to use it once when a tire blew out on the RV. It was worth every penny that day.
Yes there are other options out there, you just need to decide what it is that you are looking for from a membership program. I would think that there are more Good Sam affiliated parks than any other.
