Westgate River Ranch is a Dude Ranch located about an hour south of Orlando, Florida and two hours from where I live in south Florida. My family spent four days and three nights Glamping on property and we still didn't do everything they had to offer. Don't get me wrong, it's not crazy like Disney World. The property is over 1700 acres, so all the activities are well spread out. A golf cart rental, available on property, is a great idea to get around and enjoy the great outdoors. We enjoyed it so much that I am ready to book another trip!

- Coming Soon! Conestoga Wagons. I don't have a lot of information on these yet, but they looked intriguing when I drove by the sign.
Hayride Dinner- This is a popular option on Saturday night only. The hayride takes guests around the property on a tractor pulled hay wagon and then back to the East Corral for a buffet-style dinner.
The General Store offered pizza, sandwiches, wraps, salads, ice cream and more. Plus they had items on the shelves and in the freezer case if you forgot to bring the basics like condiments, bread, snacks, etc. Be aware that there is a lot of candy and toys at the General Store too, so if you bring in your kids they may get excited like mine did and want to leave with everything we didn't come for!
During our stay we brought our own food and cooked for ourselves at the Glampsite. The only exception to that was Saturday afternoon, when we ate at the Smokehouse Grill. We saw most families cooking their own meals at the Glampsite as well.
River Ranch offers and endless array of activities to help you connect with the outdoors. Yes, they do cost extra. that's something we built in to the budget for this trip.
**Luxe Teepee guests are treated to an all-inclusive activity experience. All of the extra charge activities on property are included for those guests except rental of pontoon boats. So everything seen on the chart above is included for those staying in Takoda Village (Luxe Teepees).
