Mandy was very hospitable and the spot is flat and sufficiently secluded. The portapotty is kept very clean and all the animals are super friendly. I recommend Happy Trails to anyone looking for a nice getaway in the area!

What a wonderful gem. Mandy met us and showed us around the farm. Introducing us to the goats and llamas and horses. Thanks Mandy for a memorable night in St. Louis.

We hoped to have success using Hipcamp for the first time but it went the complete opposite. I was informed that cell phone coverage wasn’t an issue prior to arrival to find out we had zero Verizon. That simply wasn’t acceptable for remote work. The site had large metal storage containers right across from campsite which are very ugly and not enjoyable to look at when camping. I notified owner on the first day that we wouldn’t stay. I didn’t expect a refund for that night or possibly even the second night but perhaps the third night she would consider refunding us. It wasn’t a ton of money to lose but thought she would take our complaint into consideration and offer us some goodwill. That simply wasn’t the case. I assume there are better Hipcamp hosts out there but this wasn’t a good experience. We didn’t feel safe leaving our children in the area.

We stayed at Happy Trails Farms twice because Mandy is so welcoming, the farm is beautiful, and it's very conveniently located if you are traveling. Our kids LOVED seeing all the farm animals.

Mandy's farm is a very nice place to stay! We were welcomed warmly and provided with everything we needed AND the opportunity to pet the horses. :) The field to park in was quiet and pretty. We'd definitely recommend!

Mandy helped us out when we were in a pinch. It worked out to be a great place stay and then to leave our camper and drive into see the arch and city museum. We never could have parked downtown with our camper, so it was really a perfect spot for us. Another great HIPCAMP!

They say location is the most important quality of a stay, if so Happy Trails should have the market cornered. Right near downtown, Cohicia, and bike trails. The farm is pleasant with many rescue animals. The boys loved interacting and experincing fresh fruit trees and a quiet nights sleep.

The host Mandy was very attentive and made sure everything was in order and safe. Would love to tent camp here again someday.
