I can't tell you how amazing Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo is! It is truly a one of a kind experience. It doesn't feel like a tourist trap, but is an authentic dude ranch filled with family activities. There is so much to do here that you don't need to leave. The property is stunning, animals are amazing, rodeo is super fun and the staff is wonderful! We highly recommend the glamping section for a unique experience. Thank you Westgate!!
Excellent accommodations (Glampimg Tent). Fun activity selections! Ya gotta do the swamp buggy and air boat ride! Rodeo was a great time. Nothing seemed “lame” to our teen ;)
Every single staff member we encountered were warm, friendly, smiled and we could tell that each took great pride in both their jobs and mission of making the guest experience memorable. These hard working, good valued folks set a fine example for the youth who visit River Ranch and observe everything they do from keeping it clean, to being a guest services ambassador and a server...no matter what the job or title is....the same values and level of service were both consistent and impressive.
