“What an Amazing Place”

Georgia Kelly, New Hampshire

Wow. Westgate River Ranch is absolutely beautiful. From the horses to the acres of "Old Florida" nature to the long list of activities, this is a dude ranch and so much more. Fun. Fun. Fun.

THE ULTIMATE DUDE RANCH VACATION EXPERIENCE

Looking for the ultimate, authentic Florida dude ranch experience? Look no further than Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo!

Situated just an hour south of Orlando, Westgate River Ranch Resort offers 1,700 acres of lush, beautiful, untouched Florida landscape surrounded by 400,000 acres of state and federally protected wetlands. In fact, River Ranch is the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi.

A dude ranch with fun for the entire family

Horseback riding is a way of life at Westgate River Ranch. So saddle up and experience an unforgettable horseback adventure in the Florida outback. One hour (or longer) trail rides are led by experienced riders while offering even beginners the opportunity to be a real cowboy. Special riding lessons are also available.

While riding is one of our most popular activities, it's just one of a long list of outdoor activities the entire family can enjoy. Younger ones can meet a variety of animals in the petting farm, or enjoy a pony ride. The whole family can experience the thrills of a swamp buggy or airboat ride. Still other activities include archery range, trap & skeet range, bungee jumper, golf and miniature golf, rock climbing, zip line, tennis and basketball courts, fishing and boat rentals, and more! Oh, and did we mention our award winning Saturday night Professional RODEO!
