Start enjoying one of Florida's best kept secrets — 100% original recreational paradise.
  • What can I do? Like to go ATVing? Like to go camping? Like to go hunting? At River Ranch, you can do it all! You can bring a trailer, RV, or any wheeled vehicle (no larger than 10' x 40') and use it among our miles of safe riding trails. Deer, wild boar/hogs, quail, and turkey are all available to be your target on River Ranch’s hunting property.
  • What is there to do? Right down the road is Westgate River Ranch where you can enjoy an authentic "dude ranch" experience while relaxing in luxurious, Western-style accommodations. Surrounded by 100,000 acres of protected wildlife preserve, Westgate River Ranch is a 1,700 acre ponderosa of winding trails, pristine waters, and more! Indulge yourself in a wide range of activities that allow you to escape into nature's sanctuary. You can enjoy horseback riding, guided nature hikes, fishing, boating, trap and skeet, a swimming pool, airboat rides, hayrides, and even a petting zoo — or go line dancing at the River Ranch Saloon! Westgate River Ranch is not associated with Southgate or Northgate River Ranch but it is as accessible for eating, fishing, and lodging.
