Westgate River Ranch Resort

Seeking a retreat from the ordinary? Saddle up and head out to Westgate River Ranch, an authentic Florida dude ranch nestled on 1,700 beautiful acres just one hour from both Orlando and Tampa. A true hidden gem, Westgate River Ranch is one of the few untouched pieces of Florida wilderness. Experience more than 20 outdoor activities, ranging from horseback riding, trap & skeet shooting, airboat and swamp buggy rides, golf, boating, fishing and hayrides to a new Adventure Park complete with zip line, rock climbing wall, mechanical bull, 18-hole miniature golf course and more. In addition, the thrilling Saturday night championship rodeo at the 1,200-seat Rodeo Arena features bull riding, calf roping, trick riding and barrel racing! Choose from a variety of newly renovated, Florida cowboy-themed accommodations to suit your needs such as spacious villas, cottages and cabins, as well as RV and tent camping, and even “glamping” (glamorous camping).
