Westgate River Ranch

Growing up I always loved camping. It was one of my favorite things to do. When I found out Westgate River Ranch provides camping and glamping I knew I would be in love.

Westgate River Ranch invited me out for there singer song-writer series with Craig Campbell & Chris Weaver. So I was even more excited to hear there was going to be an intimate country concert for us to enjoy.

When we got to the resort we were told we would be staying in a Luxe Conestoga Wagon! How cool is that? This is a large heavy covered wagon used in the late eighteenth century to transfer cargo by horse or oxen. Also anyone that stays in these wagons gets to enjoy many benefits including: a personal Luxe Concierge, all resort activities, VIP rodeo tickets and seating at the Saturday night Rodeo, a resort golf cart, morning coffee service and pastry delivery, afternoon snack delivery and a nightly campfire prepared for your indulgence in s’mores and fireside story-telling!

One of the best parts of the stay is knowing that all your resort activities are taken care of. You get to relax and unwind with every scheduled and planned for you. Also your room sleeps up to six guests and your room is climate controlled!

Some of the activities we participated in were horseback riding, skeet shooting, a swamp buggy ride and we even got to walk through there amazing pettiing zoo! My favorite was horseback riding. As a little girl I grew up in New York teaching others how to horseback ride. So it was so nice to have a nice relaxing trail ride with my horse Katie and our small group. We got to learn about the Westgate River Ranch property is on 1,700 acres overlooking the beautiful Kissimmee River. Hint: There is a safari being added to the resort soon. So stay tuned to my stories for when the release date is!

For dinner we indulged in a delicious dinner at the Westgate Smokehouse Grill! The restaurant is a waterfront eatery that overlooks the beautiful Kissimmee River at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo. They have a very diverse menu which offers steaks, seafood, baby back ribs, burgers, sandwiches, salads and tasty appetizers. I loved the Hand Battered Chicken Tenders (Fresh hand-cut chicken tenders marinated in buttermilk, hand breaded and fried to order. Tossed in your choice of mild, hot or BBQ sauce.)

Also Westgate River Ranch has a Deli at the General Store which has everything from groceries for your room, sandwiches, pizza, hot lunches, ice-cold beverages, ice cream, souvenirs and so much more!

Then it was on to our personal concert which is part of the singer song-writer series with Craig Campbell & Chris Weaver. It was such an intimate and memorable was unlike large concert settings and we were able to hear their own personal stories and inspirations that shaped their music which was like nothing I have ever attended. We had fun dancing, singing and having delicious drinks. The night was definitely one for the memories.

Overall I had an amazing stay at Westgate River Ranch. I have already had so many people email and message me about my experience and are planning trips soon.
