Oklahoma City – Fall Family Weekend

The Gilmartin Girls, Oct. 21, 2019

Where did we stay?

There are some pure hidden gems and history in the middle of the country.  For example, Route 66 passes right through Oklahoma City, which is also the 8th largest city by land mass. Oklahoma City has had its share of good and bad.

When people think about Oklahoma City, they may think of the 1995 OKC Bombing or they may think of OKC Thunder but here’s something they aren’t thinking about, a #historicovernight in a covered wagon like the settlers from a time, long, long ago.

The Gilmartin Girls got the pleasure of staying at the Orr Family Farm, which is based in the southern part of the OKC metro. Not only is the Orr Family Farm home to a great pumpkin patch but home to the Conestoga Wagons and unique Teepees!

Shop Local: Orr Family Farm Adds Unique "Conestoga Wagon" Camping Experience

Moore Monthly, May 1,2019

Families have enjoyed pony rides, traveling by train, corn mazes and a myriad of farm festivities at the 108-acre Orr Family Farm since their opening back in 2004. This family-friendly destination is located in the heart of the Moore and South Oklahoma City areas and offers rides, activities, educational opportunities, event venues and tasty treats. Kids and kids-at-heart enjoy feeding the baby animals, breezing down the super slides and bouncing on the giant jumping pillows.​

 

Every year visitors will find something new and different as the Orrs are continually adding new attractions. Last year they added "gaga ball" and human foosball. You never know what will be added next, when inspiration will strike or where their ideas will come from.

Their latest innovation came to owner Dr. Glenn Orr while he was sleeping. 

"It just came to me in the middle of the night one night! I woke up thinking of it," said Orr. Orr saw a similar idea online, but decided to kick it up a notch.

"I want our guests to have a lasting memory. We hope that they will enjoy making it a tradition to come to the Farm because we always add something new every year. This year is the Conestoga wagons. I can't tell you what it's going to be next year, but it will be something special."

Orr had a friend who offered camping at his park, but it only provided a basic mattress pad and porta-potties. He decided to take the idea to the next level. The Conestoga wagons are equipped with deluxe mattresses made at the Serta plant here in Oklahoma City. They are the same mattresses used by Marriott Hotels. 

"We have something very unique in this part of North America, not just in the United States but also in Canada. That is, we have these beautiful air-conditioned Conestoga wagons."

Those who love to camp and self-proclaimed "glampers" have an entirely new way to experience the magical fun of Orr Family Farm. The exciting new additions to the Farm are the Conestoga wagons. Patterned after the pioneer wagons of days gone by, 13 wagons accommodating up to 88 people are available for rental 365 days a year. There is also space provided for nature lovers to pitch their own tent.

There are two onsite campgrounds, with the biggest one designed for large groups. This area offers eight wagons with four sets of bunk beds and deluxe mattresses. They were created for those who want to enjoy the full camping experience with clean restrooms nearby, hand-washing tubs and direct-lake access.

For those looking for a more homey experience, the smaller camp area offers a true "glamping" experience. There are three wagons with a king-size bed and bunk bed and two wagons that sleep six with an additional set of bunk beds. These wagons include deluxe bedding, heating and air-conditioning, a mini-fridge and a microwave. 

Only a few steps away, guests will find private tiled restrooms with showers, a hospitality room with free hot cocoa and coffee, vending machines and a washer and dryer. Campers can also enjoy a charcoal grill, picnic tables and fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows!

If all these amenities aren't enough to entice families to experience the Farm's new camping options, the Orrs have one more fantastic feature up their sleeve that truly ups the "glam" factor... the Michael Phelps Signature Series Swim Spa.

The doctor discovered the swim spa at the state fair and decided to bring it to the Farm. He knew it was the addition that would elevate the camping experience and that it was something not available anywhere else.

"I was at the state fair and I thought it would be nice to add a spa. It was the biggest one they had. I thought, 'now there's something very unique,' we're the only one in the U.S. with the Michael Phelps spa," he said. "And of course, that's something we try to do is have something right here in the suburbs of OKC with more things for people to do."

Until recently, Orr Family Farm was only open during select seasons, closing in late fall and during the hot, mid-summer months. That has all changed. Now there is even more to love about this unique "agri-tainment" park. That is because not only can you delight in all the attractions by day, but now you can experience the park by night and enjoy the park year round. In fact, there are 20 different activities campers can enjoy during their stay when the park itself is closed. 

The first campers to try out the Conestoga wagons did so late last fall. According to Orr, the response has been excellent and guests love the new additions to the Farm. He said they even had some groups camp when we had a cold snap during the winter and that they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

To learn more about Orr Family Farm and their unique new camping options, visit www.OrrFamilyFarm.com or call (405) 799-FARM. Orr Family Farm is located at 14400 S. Western.
