So we stayed at westgate river ranch in the glamping tents for 2 nights. Other than some Mosquitos and the rain, the accommodations were pretty fantastic - Really cool way to camp. The resort is quite expensive so if you're looking for a thrifty way to vacation, this isn't it!! We did the airboat ride- eh, skeet and shoot -... More

If you're looking for somewhere that doesn't feel like "Florida", this is your place! This ranch is about 20 miles from anything, so you get the feel that you are at a true ranch. Pros: - The Rodeo - it's a real rodeo and definitely very entertaining. Totally worth the price - The General Store and the Western Wear store... More

We took our three sons for a long weekend at the ranch, Thursday to Sunday. This timeframe is perfect! What stayed in a cottage, but make sure to take an air mattress with more than two kids. The kids loved the activities and golf cart transportation. I took tons of food and drink, thanks to trip advisor. Great advice! There... More

This past weekend I had forty family members gather for my mother's 80th birthday. They did a great job on renovations to they added more activities. Who would have guessed that 80 year old woman had the time of her life riding a zip line and a bull. Rosa and Dean went out of their way.

Given this establishment is admittedly a dude ranch in Florida: The room was nicely sized, and I was surprised to find a fairly large flat screen hanging on the wall with no wires visible. The family enjoyed the few activities we did have time to experience rodeo and hay ride). The restaurant food was pretty tasty and the waitress friendly.... More
