Happy Trails Resort — Welcome.  Explore.  Enjoy.

Happy Trails Resort is a gated 55+ adult Resort community located in Surprise, Arizona on the northwest edge of the Phoenix Valley. The friendly residents are from all walks of life and pursue an active lifestyle. RV Lots and Non RV Lots are available to own or rent.Upon arrival at the front gate you will receive a Guest Services Guide which features a Resort map. Included are handouts with important information to guide you as you begin your rental stay.

Please wait at least 2 business days after checking in at the Gate before going to the HTCA Office. (The HTCA Office is located inside the Library at Town Center).

In addition, these are some items:
  • Transponders allow entrance and exit through unmanned Gates. If you are a renter with at least a 3-month rental term and you require a Transponder, the Lot owner must give permission by checking the box on the “Notice of Occupancy”  form located down by the Owner Name and signature, or emailing permission to: [email protected].  Once this is done, a Transponder can be purchased at the HTCA Office for $25.00 payable by cash or check.
  • Receiving Mail:  Happy Trails has a Mail Center on-site.  Renters may have mail temporarily forwarded to Happy Trails if the Lot owner provides them with a mailbox key.  Please check in OR call HTMC at 623-546-2494 to get the mailbox number to forward your mail temporarily to Happy Trails.
Forward to:   Your Name:    17200 W Bell Rd, Lot XXXX:    Surprise, AZ 85374

If the Lot owner does not provide a mailbox key, a mailbox can be rented from the Mail Center. Please call 623-546-2494 to obtain a box number. Thank you.
  • Resort Email List: The Notice of Occupancy (NOO) now has a line for emails!  If a Renter submits an email on the NOO Form they will receive emails from the HTCA Office and Activities automatically as soon as the rental term is entered into the system - which is about a month before the term begins.  All emails will stop when your rental term is over and the system is updated of your departure.
All residents at Happy Trails may use the facilities, join clubs, purchase tickets to our fabulous shows in the Performing Arts Center, participate in social events, and become involved in our community.  We hope that your first stay convinces you to come again and again, perhaps even to buy a Lot of your own.
