Pitch your tent or plug in your RV (30 or 50 amp, or 110 volt) on our 110 acre horse farm. Choose between staying up closer to the barns or out in the timber. We have a nice primitive spot under a 100+ year old cottonwood tree that is near a stream. There is a picnic table there as well. About 1.25 mile down the trail from the main barn is a walnut grove with a picnic table.

Pitch your tent or plug in your RV (30 or 50 amp, or 110 volt) on our 110 acre horse farm. Choose between staying up closer to the barns or out in the timber. We have a nice primitive spot under a 100+ year old cottonwood tree that is near a stream. There is a picnic table there as well. About 1.25 mile down the trail from the main barn is a walnut grove with a picnic table. The same stream runs past the walnut grove. There is a spot for a fire too. If you want more rustic, feel free to cross the creek to the timber and choose a primitive camping spot there. Enjoy mowed trails to hike or bike. Water (from hydrants and hoses) and portopotty are up near main barns. We have 60 horses on the farm as well as goats, cats, and chickens. We do not offer access to horses unless you're in a riding lesson, or have scheduled a pony riding session. We look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven with you!

If you enjoy being at a stable with lots of horses, this is the place for you. We were the only folks staying the night and this location is quite a ways out from St. Louis.

This was a nice little stop for me. I didn't get to enjoy fully because of the rain. Lots of horses, beautiful sound of trains in the distance, roosters and generally a nice place to be. I would enjoy another visit if ever back this way.

Friendly people and horses! This is great spot for a camper. Easy to pull in and set up. Lots of horse activity in every direction, which is great if you're into it. If you're looking for a woodsy, super-private site, you may be disappointed. For campers and RVs though, this is great.

Easy access with plenty of room to maneuver our 43’ motor home. Sites are fairly level lined up side by side with plenty of room for slideouts and easy access to electric.
Triangle H is a thriving equine boarding and training facility. We enjoyed the sights and sounds of folks working with their horses right outside our window.

The electric site was in a gravel parking lot that was very busy on the weekend and bright at night. However, my kids loved the farm animals and it was a short walk to the picnic area which was very scenic and nice. Not a typical camp site, but once we figured the place out we had a lot of fun.

We spent a great night here as a quick stopover en route to Seattle from Maryland. Marcy is very responsive with messaging and was accommodating of our cousins that met us and camped in a tent after we had already booked for two of us in an RV. There are ~7 parking slips for RVs with power hookups right near the horse facilities. The horses were quiet at night and it doesn’t smell in the RV area. There were also a couple bonfire pits with lots of wood. Nobody from the farm greeted us or came around the RVs to check on everyone - definitely a nice-to-have at Hipcamps and not a requirement, but good to know in advance. You’ll also likely be within feet of other RVs, which we didn’t realize before getting there.

Nice, quiet secluded spot. We were the only ones there.
Very close to Edwardsville where you can pick up any kind of food or supplies.

This was a quick but perfect stay. We got there late, hooked up to the electric and fell right asleep. Then woke to a bustling and tidy horse farm and left in the morning. Short and sweet.
