An authentic dude ranch nestled in one of the few untouched pieces of Florida wilderness, Westgate River Ranch features a variety of cowboy-themed accommodations – ranging from glamping tents and suites to spacious two-bedroom cabins.
Westgate Smokehouse Grill
A charming waterfront eatery, the Westgate Smokehouse Grill overlooks the scenic Kissimmee River and provides family-friendly dining and a diverse menu that features mouthwatering steaks, seafood, baby back ribs, burgers, sandwiches, salads and appetizers, as well as an abundant breakfast buffet and children’s menu.
River Ranch Saloon
Adjacent to the Rodeo Arena lies the immensely popular River Ranch Saloon, where you can experience “live country-western foot-stompin’ entertainment and line dancing” Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy live music on the weekends and line dancing lessons on Friday evenings. A full bar is available at the River Ranch Saloon.
Deli at the General Store
In the mood for a quick bite to eat in between activities at the Ranch? The Deli at the General Store serves everything from deli sandwiches, pizza and salads to ice-cold beverages and refreshing ice cream. Indoor and outdoor seating is available at the Deli, which is open daily.
View abundant wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bald eagles, wild hogs, sandhill cranes, wading birds, alligators and wild turkeys as you are entertained by a singing cowboy during this old-fashioned, tractor-pulled hayride, which includes a family-style cookout buffet at the East Corral.
The largest dude ranch in Florida, Westgate River Ranch features something for everyone, including a myriad of various cowboy, water and team-building activities. Be sure to catch our Saturday night rodeo, complete with trick riding, bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing in our 1,200-seat Rodeo Arena.
Enjoy quality time with friends and family at Round-Up Miniature Golf, an 18-hole course that winds its way through the new Adventure Park in front of the River Ranch Saloon. Full of entertaining obstacles and challenges, Round-Up Miniature Golf is the perfect spot to chill out in early morning or late afternoon.
Little cowpokes can get a taste of the dude ranch experience with Pony Rides located inside the Petting Farm.
