Happy Trails farm is a beautiful & refreshing place that you can relax, and connect with the family farm life. We were established Oct. 27th, 2007, and it's our "Acres of Diamonds" (Earl Nightengale). There are 20.11 acres of farm life to share with you. We do many things to help keep the farm going, and moving towards & continuing to be self supporting. We sell fresh farm eggs, offer many on the farm and off the farm services. Such as pony rides, birthday parties, weddings, camp outs, and so much more. We also house and run Happy Trails Horse Rescue (501c3) non for profit, and accept donations. Some of the things you will experience and see are: volunteers helping out, horses, mules, donkeys, chickens, ducks, geese, turkey, goats, llama, and many others. We are a small and important resource to the overall well being of community. We look forward to seeing you on the farm! Check in is between 2pm-9pm. No late night check ins. Happy Trails Farm Resort is a great place to get lost and find a connection.  We are a small homestead family farm with many farm animals. Come pitch a tent under the farm stars. Happy Trails :)

A good time
We tent camped there and loved it. There are many farm animals to wonder around and look at. And beautiful willow trees. Very importantly, it is a *short* distance (like 15 minute drive) from there to Cahokia Mounds and to downtown St. Louis (and the arch). Unfortunately there was road noise but it was pretty far away. And the coyote howls were *awesome* late at night.

Sweet, remarkably quiet camping spot with contented animals sharing the space. Not fancy, but clean and well thought out. Highly recommend.

Mandy’s Farm is so cute! Very close to St Louis, yet feels very far from city life. Easy check in and Mandy is very responsive and helpful. While you are in Granite City, don’t skip picking up some BBQ at JJ’s Bar-B-Q & More - great Brisket and Ribs - just a few minutes drive from Mandy’s!

Easy access
Mandy and her team were very welcoming. We were the only campers on our stop over so it was very private and the farm critters were so fun to watch as we must have been equally entertaining for them. One note is we had no cell service which we were expecting based on the property description. It wasn’t until we left that our messages came through with parking instructions. So be sure to communicate probably an hour in advance to get any special instructions and avoid setting up where the host specifically tells you not to set up (sorry Mandy). All in all I would stay again and recommend. Some people have mentioned freeway noise but we didn’t hear anything but birds and horses.

This place is the cutest!
Mandy was a great host! She was a very responsive host and answered all of our questions. The farm was adorable and it was an easy in and out. Would definitely go back!
