If evenings spent by the campfire crafting the perfect s’more followed by days of exciting activities and good food sounds like your ideal getaway, glamping—or luxury camping—is the answer! At Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo in Florida, stunning landscapes and rich history are the backdrop to endless excitement and potential memories for every member of the family. Seclude yourself among the beauty of nature while enjoying every modern comfort and experiencing an adventure you’ll never forget!
For guests seeking a more traditional resort experience, cottages and cabins offer all the comforts of home—or stay in a lodge suite to be close to all the food and fun. Feel like getting close to nature? Whether it’s in the luxurious glamping tents or the quaint luxe teepees, you’ll find everything you need for an unforgettable stay while enjoying the rustic charm of sleeping among the great outdoors.
Stock up for your campfire meals at the General Store, or if you feel like dining out, take the family over to the Westgate Smokehouse Grill for everything from a Southern-style breakfast buffet to sizzling steaks and fresh salads. For large gatherings and events, take advantage of the top-notch on-site catering services.
Whether you feel like letting your inner Robin Hood shine on the archery range or taking in the sights on horseback, the ranch offers no shortage of ways to spend the day. Enjoy the breeze and spot local wildlife while taking an airboat tour of the Kissimmee River, or hop on the swamp buggy for something with a little more excitement.
To get the whole family involved, head over to the petting farm, then spend the evening at the rodeo, which offers thrills every Saturday night. Afterwards, visit the River Ranch Saloon for the weekly street party where you can line dance a hole in your brand-new boots!
