Westgate River Ranch Resort Reviews
My wife and I were on a scouting trip for an upcoming visit from the grandchildren. This is a unique getaway for families with smaller children. Upon arrival, we asked and were given an upgrade to a l... more »
Relaxing, beautiful, plenty to do, spacious areas, helpful employees in the reception center. Rodeo was exciting (and the show goes on rain or shine & I personally wish the winners at closing were announced & brought to the front of audience to be presented with their money or trophies). Shaded spot for our RV among beautiful trees. New golf carts to rent. Open Range Band is very talented. Starbucks is a plus in the general store. Security always present for a peace of mind. You can bring your plane or boat! HOWEVER, everything here inside the ranch is pricey, which is the case everywhere you go unfortunately. But I strongly believe that guests paying to stay on the grounds (whether in an RV, tent, yert, cabin, lodge, hotel room, etc.) should receive some level of discounts toward any activity or event and/or even have some free ones for kids under a certain age. For now, one pays full price for everything (except petting zoo). A weekend for a family with rental housing, food, and activities will set you back a pretty penny.
This place is so wonderful for a family vacation!! I stayed in a cabin with my parents and two children. Very spacious and cozy. My kids loved seeing the buffalo right out our window! Definitely hope to return here again sometime. So many fun things to do!
