We stayed 6 days at the ranch...It may be good for a weekend stay with children, but during the week there is nothing to do. The closest walmart is 35 miles away and you will be surrounded by bushes...it is a ranch...We did the swamp buggy tour which is about 25.00 per adult and 15.00 for children. There was hardly...

This is a great place to go for the weekend, but it is not good for the kids on Monday -Thursday. There is nothing to do during the week.

We stayed at the River Ranch RV Resort. These are all "owner" sites that you rent through the main office. Our site was located on the Canal and I highly recommend these sites versus the Phase 1-4 site options. Most sites are back-in although some of the Canal owner sites created pull-in sites for motorhomes. Tons of stuff to do... More

RV camp very nice facilities good, can only hire golf trollies on a Saturday. Smokehouse restaurant very poor value, general store does not sell anything you could make a meal of just candy bread drinks,souveniers and the odd daily special. The nearest food store is Walmart 25 miles away.

We have enjoyed the Sunday buffet many times and were disappointed by our visit today (10/20/13). The omelette station and grits were excellent but the rest of the food and the service left quite a bit to be desired. In the hour we were at the table, our server never asked if we wanted more coffee or tea. I did... More

While the food was acceptable( burgers were good!!), the service we received from Tracy and her "shadow" was exceptional. They made the dining experience a pleasure!! We had several meals at the Smokehouse, all with great service from the pair(we asked for them every time) Air boat ride and rodeo very enjoyable. Rainy hayride was regrettable, as there was a...

We were so pleasantly surprised the first time we arrived to the ranch.(have been there twice) The grounds are very scenic, up to date and well maintained. All of the staff were friendly and available. They are constantly out and about checking on the grounds, seeing how the guests are doing, etc. We rented one of the cabins that overlook... More

I enjoyed the buffet and the rodeo afterwards was a good time. Very cool cowboy atmosphere! The ranch was much larger and more extensive than expected. It seemed to be it's own community with everything including a church, airport, restaurant, hotel and a saloon. The bull riding was entertaining but wasn't much of a competition because most of them didn't... More
