Gold Nugget Sams


Our chapter began back in January 1977, in Sonora, Ca., (Tuolumne county), with a group of four couples and soon began to grow and prosper and thus decided to begin a Good Sam Chapter.  As the chapter grew it continues to emphasize friendship, fun, and service to others.  We do our campouts once a month, usually the first or second week of any month rangingfrom February to November.  We are not restricted to any specific area or mileage limits.  Our outings usually consist of 4 - 5 days, Monday - Friday.  We play cards, fish, go sightseeing, play games, have potlucks, and do charity work and socializing.

Gold Nugget Sams is always looking for new members to enjoy the fun and excitement of our campouts. ....Come give us a try, you will be happy you did.  Contact information listed below.

Everyone had a great time with plenty of social time, food, free golf along with evening cards and games.
