River Ranch, FL

Travel Guide

Canter across the open range, ride a mechanical bull and explore the Kissimmee River at this unique dude ranch community in Central Florida.

If “cowboy” makes you think of bull riding and calf roping, find these activities and more at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo in Central Florida. Put on your Stetson hat and get ready for a unique and luxurious vacation experience.

Just a 90-minute drive south of Orlando, River Ranch seems a world away. The moment you step onto the 1,700-acre (700-hectare) farm, you are transported back to an era when cowboys and cattle ranchers reigned.

River Ranch offers activities that will make you feel like a real cowboy. Saddle a horse for a memorable trail ride through the ranch’s pristine wilderness. Safely test your aim in the Trap & Skeet Range. Meet llamas, emus and pot-bellied pigs at the Petting Farm. Younger guests can ride a pony.

The lush Kissimmee River snakes through River Ranch. Rent a pontoon boat or canoe from the Marina. Take an airboat ride and look for alligators, herons and other wildlife. Discover the best places to cast your line on a guided fishing tour.

Enjoy nature in the KICCO Wildlife Management Area along the Kissimmee River. River Ranch is close to a trailhead for the Florida Trail. Hike or bike along this picturesque national scenic trail, running the length of the state.

Enjoy some thrills at the Adventure Park. Try to keep your balance on the mechanical bull. Soar across the zip line, not a typical cowboy activity, but definitely thrilling. Play a round on the 9-hole or miniature golf courses.

Tent camp like the cowboys of yesteryear or indulge in the luxury of modern amenities. River Ranch has many accommodations options, including a large plot for RV parking. After a full day of activities, enjoy a gourmet meal, drinking and dancing in the saloon or a relaxing swim in the pool.

Come to River Ranch for its famous Saturday Night Rodeo. Every weekend, hundreds of people converge upon the rodeo grounds to see calf roping, barrel racing and bull riding.
