Stay at one of the only Donkey Dairies in the United States! The Oklahoma Donkey Dairy is home to 35 Critically Endangered American Mammoth Donkeys. Our farm and our Dulce de Donké donkey milk skincare products have been featured in Southern Living Magazine, Garden & Gun Fieldshop, Fox News, KOCO, News 9, Good Morning New Mexico, Channel 2 Tulsa, and multiple local publications.
Experience the Oklahoma Donkey Dairy in person, meet the gentle giants (American Mammoth Donkeys), hike the trails through the woods, relax in the grain bin gazebos with a good book, or just hang out in a hammock while the littles take turns on the zipline through the woods, teeter-totter and trikes, play in the playhouse, slide down the old school slipper slide, or play a few rounds of corn hole, giant checkers, and donkey tic-tac-toe.
Everyone asks why on earth we started milking donkeys, the answer is that we never planned on milking donkeys, but sometimes God throws a wrench in our best laid plans! For our family, that wrench came on June 6, 2014. The day our 6-year-old woke up with strep throat which caused her immune system to mistakenly attack her brain. We were one of the few who got a correct diagnosis early, PANDAS disease (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disease Associated with Strep Throat). The top doctors in the nation said their "best guess was antibiotics every day for the next 13 years." This guess wasn't good enough. We cried a lot, prayed a lot, and cried some more. God ended up answering our prayer in an unlikely way, through an unlikely source...Donkey milk. In other countries, donkey milk is well known for its health benefits but in America, it was practically unheard of, made even more difficult to find since donkeys give very little milk! So we did what any desperate parent would do for their child, and started our own herd of American Mammoth Donkeys.
These critically endangered donkeys are the descendants of President George Washington's first imported French Donkeys, royal gifts from the King of France. It was Washington's dream to create a breed of mule that would be strong enough to work this new land, and for this, he needed a large, strong breed of donkey to sire those mules. When the mule fell out of favor with the advent of the tractor and the plow, the need for Mammoth Donkeys declined, and so did their numbers.

Saundra and Walt were the most hospitable host I've encountered so far on Hipcamp. They property was wall maintained and you'd never know you were only 30 min away from OKC. I highly recommend this site for anyone with kids. 5 stars!

Friendly hosts! Our camping spot was great and we loved learning about the donkeys and dairy. Tinkerbell the donkey even hung out with us for a while :)

We had a wonderful time at the Donkey Diary sitting around the campfire making s’mores. We loved petting the family dogs and cats, meeting Bonnie the donkey, and were surprised how good donkey milk is! Lots of places to sit and hang out in a lovely wooded area. We enjoyed the stars and the peacefulness.
Also… as an aside… I’ve purchased the Better Than Botox moisturizer here, made with donkey milk. The lavender scent at bedtime (which is strong, natural, and fades pretty quickly so it’s not annoying) puts me right to sleep and I wake up with smooth moisturized skin! Thank you donkeys, Saundra, Walt, and Hannah!
