Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo is located only 1 hour south of Orlando and only 30 minutes from Yeehaw Junction. A true one on one experience with nature and a great way to disconnect from the buzz of daily city life.Experience one of the last untouched pieces of Florida wilderness at Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo- an authentic Florida dude ranch that lies just one hour South of Orlando in Polk County FL- where guests can return to the days of Old Florida when the state was home to cowboys and cattle ranchers. The Ranch lies on 1700 acres overlooking the scenic Kissimmee River a...More details

Booked Mon-Thursday. Ended up staying only 1 night. Main Restaurant and Adventure Park closed. Only food available at General Store, very limited selection...hope you like chicken. Sandwiches like gas station food. When going in for coffee in the morning, opened at 8, arrived at 8:05, and employee called us "Clock Watchers". Room is older, has musty odor, and besides dust bunnies on the floor, pretty clean. TV picture on some channels were like a strobe light, and quality poor. WIFI is not free...will cost you 10 bucks. Adventure park for kids. Not big. Only good experience, was the horse riding. Went on a trail ride before leaving and it saved the whole trip. Our guide was awesome. Summary, best for RV's and campers. If staying at the lodge, only book for the weekend! If not, bring food to eat that can cook up in an extremely small microwave!!! The resort that is advertised, is completely different, and not worth the prices.
Good Fun at the Ranch!

I stayed for one night to attend the Nashville Singer-Songwriter Series concert event. It was a rainy day, so the outdoor concert event was moved indoors, and the resort did a great job of adjusting so the show could go on. The event was held in the Saloon, and it was amazing! Such a vibe. The resort itself was really cool. They offer a ton of activities, and we were able to enjoy an airboat ride and visit the petting farm. There are so many animals and it was a really fun experience. We took advantage of renting a golf cart, which was a fun and efficient way of traveling around the property. For dinner we ate at the grill restaurant right by the water. The staff was so kind, and the food was served in surprisingly large portions. We definitely got our bang for our buck, and it was quite tasty! Juiciest burger and gator bites I've had in a long time! I'd definitely recommend this resort for a fun and engaging family vacation!
To the Westgate River Management attention
Reviewed 22 november, 2021
As a customer, I would like to bring to Westgate River Ranch management attention a couple of points. 1. Even though it is camping site, an outdoor facility glamping tents should be appropriately cleaned. Throwing out trash and wiping a patio table is not sufficient for cleaning a tent that cost $478.80 per night. (Please see pics attached). 2. The vending machines are “sold out” , really is it that hard to refill vending machines. They were sold out for 3 days that we stayed at the resort. My children wanted to drink water while playing at the adventure park, the bar was closed, vending machines sold out. 3. Video games, the token machine is out of order, the tickets booth is out of tokens… The video games room shares space with an abandoned bar. 4. The adventure park area has activities only for children who are at least 42” which really creates a problem for families with children below 42”. what are they suppose to do ? Watch they older siblings having fun and cry ?? 5. Why is the line dancing only once a week? What about those who arrive on Sunday and leave on Wed? Why not have more than once a week? Why is the bar closed on a Monday? Please take these point into consideration to make Westgate River Ranch resort a pleasurable Place to come back to, this is not a cheap resort after all even though the glamping tents are outdoors, appropriate cleaning should be implemented.

My wife and i were flying our plane to Orlando VFR when the weather closed in and we could not land at our destination. I looked on our MFD and saw the closest airport to land and wait out the weather was 2RR. Turns out it is the airstrip at Westgate River Ranch. We were the only plane there and were greeted by Nita. She could not have been more welcoming and offered us a tour of the ranch and to set us up with accommodations if we could not get to our destination that evening. Everyone we met had the same "can do" attitude - clearly a great service culture. We will be back!
