We have a timeshare with Westgate Resorts. We usually visit our 'home' resort, but were looking for something different this year. We were not disappointed with River Ranch in Lake Wales, FL. Even though it was a 'dude' ranch, our accommodations were very upscale. Our one bedroom, efficiency was clean and well stocked. Their large heated pool and hot tub... More

I took my mother and daughter Glamping this weekend and we had a blast. It was so much cooler that I thought it was going to be and the staff is awesome. We arrived about 4 got checked in and then did a great Airboat ride and saw plenty of big Gators and Wildlife. The accommodations are great, mini frig,... More

We have been a timeshare owner for the last 10 years at this beautiful location (Westgate River Ranch) and we are so glad that we hung on to our investment because it is really starting to pay off for us. The staff is quickly ironing out the early on glitches that we use to face when we first purchased here.... More

I went glamping with my family for spring break earlier this year, March 14-16. It was awesome and we had a blast! The glamping area is great, a nice gated area with private bathrooms for each glamping tent! Staff will deliver you breakfast each morning (4 cinnamon rolls, fruit, coffee and orange juice). That was a pleasant surprise. We brought... More

Went on a vacation with my husband, mom and 3 kids and they have so much to do here! Great value for the money spent! Every day there is an activity from the adventure park to the rodeo petting zoo marina etc.! I mean it's so quiet and relaxing and you don't want to leave! They have a party on... More

The set up of this place is great and seemingly very organized. When we arrived however the "adventure park" was closed even though it was within business hours and there were no signs stating when staff would return. There were horses tied up in several places unattended for decent periods of time. I paid for a pony ride for my... More

I brought a European friend for a 2 night visit for an Old Florida countryside experience. The entry to Westgate gives the impression that the property is expansive and accessible but all structures and camping sites are miniature, bunched together versions and built along the entry road, in plain view of passing traffic and there is nowhere to walk other...

I had driven past the entrance to this resort on a couple of occasions and wondered who would ever go there considering it is in the absolute middle of the State of Florida not close to anything else, but I sure am glad that we decided to take our daughters there for a weekend their birthdays. The Ranch is the... More

We just checked out after two nights of glamping with the family. First the good...the experience as a whole was great. You get to experience camping but have some basic luxuries like electricity, running water, bathrooms etc. The people inside the camp were extremely nice. The woman selling mini golf tickets, Lester was awesome, Gustavo, Camille...they were all so friendly... More
