Out in the middle of nowhere, town is 20 plus miles away. Great place to get away from it all. Cabins were spacious and well equipped. Staff was very friendly. Enjoyed all of the attractions except the golf course which was closed for some reason. We arrived Saturday night and left Saturday morning and missed the rodeo (next time I... More

We visited the property to attend the Saturday night rodeo. While there we ate ate the smokehouse restaurant. All of us had the buffet and I was very impressed. They offered a big roast beef, BBQ ribs, chicken, beans, mac & cheese, soup, rolls. The rodeo was a great time and very well done. I was surprised at the quality... More

Stayed at the Westgate resort, River Ranch. My first time. We stayed in one of their cottages which was great. Spacious and have all the facilities you need. We also had family staying on the RV resort so we each brought a golf cart. Golf Carts made the vacation! Kids loved them. We spent some time by the pool and... More

My son loves to tent camp, and I'm a city girl who likes a hotel room with amenities, and this was a perfect compromise for our family. We are already planning to go again, as we missed the Rodeo due to the bad weather (they had it, but, well, city girl), but we will go back when it is not... More

First let me state that I base my vacations on reviews and I do not easily throw out negative comments without serious warrant. Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo is one of the few deserving "resorts" of a terrible review and I highly recommend that you reconsider visiting this location for family vacation.
