So it rained little this afternoon. Not unusual for Florida. But then the big open field the use for tent camping became a LAKE. Literally our tent was sitting in 6 inches of water! Had to pack up and head home a few hours after we got there. Trent camping is a joke (NO individual sites, no privacy, no electricity)... More

The staff was rude, doesn't care about the customer at all and they act they all hate their life. We were celebrating a bachelorette party and we all work in hotels and restaurants, we are nice to service people. There was no reason for the terrible service. We expected a wonderful dinner at the SmokeHouse they amped up, and the... More

We went to spend a couple of days at a dude ranch and enjoy some of activities in addition to the horses. It was, in a word, awful. The food service offered consisted of one mediocre restaurant that is not open for lunch. For lunch, the only available place is about 5 tables at the back of the general store,... More

Westgate River Ranch is THE BEST place for team-building activities, team meetings, trade shows and many more functions for your business.

I must say, this has been an amazing experience at Westgate River ranch. I took a mini vacation/birthday getaway with my family consisting of 16 people. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, which was incredible, large space. Quiet, a little distance from the main attractions, but that was the best part, we were secluded. It may help to rent... More
