Westgate River Ranch: Glamping in Florida
Thank you to Westgate for hosting us on this unforgettable Florida travel getaway!
Westgate River Ranch Glamping in Florida
There are so many options when you stay at the River Ranch property. You have to try one of their Luxe tents!
With over 500 square feet of fully furnished, climate controlled, camping space, including your own private en suite (tre magnifique!), you and your family will be able to get even closer to nature, surrounded by the Ranch’s scenic beauty, without ever having to use an out-house! Roughing it has never been so relaxing!
Our room was perfect at 505 square feet with room to sleep four. Along with AC and heating (And yes, we actually used that heater during our trip in January to warm up!), there’s a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. There are two rocking chairs out front along with a hammock and picnic tables. There’s room for s’mores and a fire pit of course too.
Our room also came with a Resort Golf Cart that we loved. It made it SO easy to grab a Starbucks on the property at the store. The resort provided us with snacks and coffee, plus a golf cart to drive around the whole place with!
Westgate River Ranch Activities
You can get ready to adventure off the beaten path on a rugged 40-minute Swamp Buggy ride across Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo’s scenic wilderness located near Orlando, Florida.
I was so excited to go horseback riding. I couldn’t tell you the last time I was close to a horse. This environment made me feel safe to get on the saddle and enjoy it.
We visited on a beautiful sunny January week, so the weather was warm during the day with a little chill at night. It was so perfect! If you’re trying to decide when is the best time to visit Florida, you can’t really go wrong with a fall or winter trip.
We were provided with all the materials needed for a safe day at the range. My partner, Ness, is a veteran so was well-versed in gun safety. Between Ness and our guide, I felt super safe and comfortable shooting a gun for the first time. It was one of those bucket list items that I never thought I’d cross off my list. But, here we are!
All the equipment and supplies you need are available for rent, but feel free to bring your own. The range is also available for hosting your next trap and/or skeet association or group event.
Westgate River Ranch Food: 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
One thing we did in between all our activities was visiting the petting zoo. We could get up close and personal with a peacock, a donkey, some horses, and other furry friends.
The Nashville Singer Songwriter event was a BLAST and the perfect way to end our trip. We were there for the singer song-writer series with Craig Campbell and Chris Weaver.
So, when are you booking your trip? I’m happy to give you ideas and help you decide between their lodging… from wagon wheel rooms, teepees, or luxury glamping, there are SO many choices. Plus, they have primitive and RV campsites and more traditional rooms too to fit any budget.
