Westgate River Ranch had so many fun and exciting things for our group of 23 people - no one was ever board!! We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom cabin looking out over a pasture of buffalo for my daughter's 6th birthday. The afternoon we arrived everyone wanted to swim, then we got ready and met at the Smokehouse Grille... More

I planned a family reunion there this summer and it was wonderful. Our group used a variety of accommodations including cabins, lodge rooms and glamping. I personally did the glamping and it was really neat. We took advantage of the many activities available - although it was all a la carte pricing we did enjoy them a great deal! We... More

We went to this hotel in April. It's expensive but we would love to ride horse in America. The rooms were very nice and clean. Everything looks nice and clean. But it's too big and the people from the reception are unhelpfull. We would like to ride horse but it's just animal abuse. She told they walk for 5 hours... More

Just returned from our stay with 300 youth and 50 adults and this was by far our most enjoyable and successful camp experience. We used several room types, Guest rooms, Deluxe Lodge Suites, Cabins and Rail Cars, all of which were well appointed. We've used Glamping in the past (an experience you have to try), just not this time. The... More

Glamping at River Ranch Resort was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my entire life. You get the camping feel and experience while still getting the luxury and comfort of having air conditioning, raised air mattresses to sleep on, a wood floor, lights, a porch, and breakfast delivered to your porch every morning. The campfire, which... More

We rented two "Railroad cabins" to accommodate 4 adults and 3 children. The units were actually individual single-wide trailers that were perfect with a king size bed and two bunk beds. Plenty of things to do, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The place was packed with campers, travel trailers, and hotel guests, but was clean and most enjoyable.... More
