Our Story

Our story starts with you, the campers and outdoor enthusiasts. We started in 1966 with one small store in Beech Bend Park outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky.

What began as a way to fulfill campers’ requests for supplies has continued to build over the decades into the largest outdoor lifestyle retailer with hundreds of locations and tens of thousands of employees.

Our mission has not changed. We’re here to be your hometown outdoor outfitter.

Our Brands

As the leader of the outdoor lifestyle industry, our goal is to make RV ownership and the outdoors as fun, comfortable, safe, and carefree as possible. We want you to build memories that last a lifetime, and we work towards that end every day at more than 235 locations throughout the U.S.

What started with the single brand of Camping World now encompasses such well-known names as Gander RV & Outdoors, Overton’s, The House, and, of course, Good Sam. Camping may be where things began, but today we outfit our customers for boating and water sports, hunting, fishing, biking, and winter sports and more.
