A little pricey but a wonderful vacation. Make sure you ask if all of the attractions will be open during your stay. We missed the rodeo since I had the days mixed up. Also some of the amenities were scheduled to be closed. The front desk let us have an owners card to make up for it. We had a... More

There are ample opportunities for fun and adventure all over the resort. Air boat rides, trap and skeet, a rodeo, and, dune buggy rides; just to name a few. The facility's avarage appearance is quickly forgotten once inside the outstanding rooms. The lack of an ice maker, requiring the purchase of bagged ice, is a little disappointing. And, the lack...

We were very fortunate to have taken advantage of their Veteran's Day special that granted us a few nights stay for free. There was so much to do at the ranch from bike rides, walking, horseback riding, airboat rides, etc. that we were never bored. We would definitely return. One word of advice, bring your own food or shop at... More

We just spent this past weekend at WGRR and had a wonderful time! The 2-bedroom Saddle Ridge cabin we stayed in was clean, spacious and easily fit our family of 7. There was room for even 4 more people with another pull-out couch and Murphy Bed. It worked out well to bring in our own food. Our kids couldn't get... More

This resort was so much more fun than we anticipated. I read the book, "A Land Remembered," and came across this resort as I was searching for information on the location online. I booked the Ultimate Family Adventure for a weekend March 28-30 and two grandparents, one parent and an eight-year-old all enjoyed the experience. Not the camping types, we... More

Unfortunately there are plenty of things they could approve upon. Below find the good, the bad and the ugly... Rooms: Recently renovated rooms were comfortable and clean. AC blew cold. Beds were comfortable but small. Cute western decor but it made the rooms rather dark. Pillows were lumpy and walls are thin. I could hear every word our neighbors said.... More

I can't imagine a more laid back and comfortable place to spend a weekend with family. We had six adults and two children with us altogether. We had three rooms, two of which were adjoining suites. We opened the door up between the two and had a VERY comfortable area to stay in. The rooms were clean and had fully... More

Just left WGRR we had such a great time we are sad to leave. We did the RV camping. The camping section was a pretty big area with water and electric for campers. You were surrounded by horses which was awesome. The showers always fairly clean and warm. We got there Wednesday night and the adventure park was open but... More

My wife set this up for our family, and we spent March 15-16 on the property. The ranch is spread out and I was told the roads were recently repaved. The glampers were just past the campers, but there is a chained gate separating the glampers. Obviously they want to keep the campers out of the glamper area. There are... More
