Fall Samboree – 2013

The Oklahoma Fall Samboree of 2013 was the final Samboree to be held at the “Will Rogers Downs Event Center” in Claremore, Oklahoma.  The first Oklahoma Samboree held in Claremore was in Spring 2001.  All future Oklahoma Samborees will be held annually in Shawnee beginning October 2014. 


This samboree’s theme was “Once Upon a Time,” and drew a total of 179 rigs from across Oklahoma and neighboring states.  The “Grand Lake Sams” provided the stage design and decorations, which took a look back to RVing of yesteryear . . . .
