“Glamping” on the Kissimmee at River Ranch

Suggested by Jean McElroy, FS Production Manager

Here’s a unique way to spend a few days in the Florida backcountry: Stay in one of the air-conditioned, luxe-appointed canvas tents at Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo. Each “glamour camping” unit has a king and twin bed, and comes with a key to a private bath. Services include nightly campfire tended by staff; morning delivery of coffee, tea and juice. River Ranch has a marina on the Kissimmee River, boat rentals and great fishing nearby, as well as a long list of other recreational activities. Plus, each Saturday night there’s a real-live rodeo, complete with trick riding, barrel racing and bull-riding.
