Everything was great! The host was extremely nice and explained everything we needed to know when we got there. Our kids loved the farm animals, all were very friendly. Especially snickers the donkey. We will definitely be back!

This place was awesome. Far enough away from town that it was dark at night and I couldn’t hear the drone of nearby highways.

Yes there was poop from the farm animals. I didn’t find it to be unmanageable, and the presence of animals walking around was definitely worth it. Also, owner said that she has a mower she uses to mulch it, but it had broken.

Owner was super nice and helpful. A couple of things I’d probably do if I were her: 1) Make the locations of the dumpster and water spigot easier to access/locate. 2) Put down a more permanent structure for the lavatory.

If you are spooked by farm animals (chickens, geese, donkeys, horses, goats, pigs, etc) this will not be a fun place for you. They were close and made noise throughout the day and night (bring some earplugs if you’re a lite sleeper!). If you like animals, or are at least fine with keeping your distance, it’ll be no problem.

Awesome campground!

It was a good time staying at Hummingbird Holly Farm Sanctuary. There are a few things that we don't feel were covered in any of the reviews, which made the expectations likely incorrect. The hosts were certainly hospitable and it was an affordable and easy way to connect with some family. The animals were definitely a plus and a cool experience.

The flip side of the animals were that there was poop throughout the camping experience. We searched for this in other reviews but didn't see it so we assumed there was some sort of separation between the camping and the animals. You'll just need to weigh that in. I can't say that this alone would keep us from going again, but definitely would be a detractor.

The camping experience with other campers is akin to what you'd get at a public park camping experience. It's probably actually a little better. You can see and hear other camp sites (maybe 100 feet away?) but it's bearable for sure.

The bathrooms were also very much a true camping experience. We selected the location because it said it had a bathroom. We assumed it'd be some sort of basic outhouse or something. It's really using the restroom in a small tent into a plastic bag. This can certainly be better than the woods or no bathroom but it's on the line.

Outside of other campers, it was very quiet and beautiful at night with the stars.

We would certainly go again for the first-time farm camping experience if we had never been.

We enjoyed our first stay at Hummingbird Hollow so much that we just had to come back! We spent time visiting with all the animals again and went on the hike on the property, which is so well marked. We had the opportunity to stay in the brand new Lady Asha Yurt/Treehouse. It was so cozy inside, with colorful quilts and comfy pillows. The yurt is located in a secluded area of the property and offered a peaceful refuge when it rained at night. We sat on the beautiful porch to make our meals and woke up to visits from Honey the goat, a few donkeys, Tie Dye the dog, and a mother pig and her baby piglets. Such a treat! We will definitely be back again. Susan has created such a wonderful home for the animals and we are grateful for the opportunity to visit.

Susan had an amazing storybook farm perfect for my solo stay. I would have loved to had my wife and our little ones, they would have had fun petting donkeys and chasing geese and piggies. They had plenty of space with a toilet and plans for a yurt. Highly recommend!

Wow. If you get the opportunity to stay here, I would not pass it up. I only wish I could have stayed longer. This sanctuary was truly magical. Susan was very communicative and took time to share everything I needed to know for my stay. I was greeted by the fuzzy heads of animals, eager for the love of strangers.

You can't *not* have a wonderful stay here. On a Friday night on the 1st of October, it was busy with 3 groups, including myself. Lots of room to sprawl and run around. I had so much fun watching the kids in another group get stoked about the animals. I stopped in on my 3rd night of a cross country trip from Arizona to New Hampshire and my cup was totally filled pulling out early the next morning.

Thank you for everything you do, Susan. As a vegan, I'm very inspired by your beautiful lifestyle and land, which you have offered to the animals to live free. Peace and love.

Hummingbird Hollow Farm happened to be about halfway between my house and my SIL’s house (northern Indiana and central Oklahoma) so it was a perfect spot to meet up for a few day of camping. Little did we know - it was perfect for so many more reasons! The location was secluded and cozy, but not too far from basic comforts (gas station about 15 minutes away for coffee or a random snack run). The campsites were wonderfully maintained and great for popping a tent. Our nightly campfire was a real treat. Our kiddos loved exploring the space and getting to know the animals, which, let’s be honest was the very best part! We made so many new furry friends during our stay that we can’t help but start to plan our next trip! The animals were all so sweet and friendly; each of us had our own favorite (mine was the pig we called ‘Mumma Pig’- she was a little bossy but also happy to get her ears scritched). I am so happy we stumbled across the listing and will be raving about it for a long time to come!
