River Ranch Celebrates International Glamping Weekend in June

Posted on May 21st, 2015 by

Categories: Accommodations, General

In honor of International Glamping Weekend, June 6-7, Westgate River Ranch is offering a special glamping vacation package through June to encourage people try glamping. International Glamping Weekend is a weekend designated to celebrate glamping’s exciting blend of traditional outdoor camping with the glamour of hotel amenities. To join in on the celebration, Westgate River Ranch is offering an enhanced glamping package that includes a golf cart, $20 daily resort credit and s’mores kit to enjoy around nightly campfires along with a glamping site that features a fully furnished, air-conditioned tent and private bathroom access. To encourage more new glampers, the package is available for booking through June for travel dates through Sept. 30. The package starts at $199, offering a savings of up to 25 percent. Book with code “IGW2015” at www.westgateriverranch.com or call 863-692-1321.

On the same land where America’s first cowboys roamed, glamping provides Westgate River Ranch guests with a variety of amenities to enjoy the ultimate cowboy experience without “roughing it.” Each glamping site features a screened-in porch with rocking chairs, private gas propane grill and picnic table, access to private bathrooms and an array of interior amenities: bedroom furniture and dining set, a mini refrigerator, microwave, air conditioning, electrical outlets, a ceiling fan and various board games.

To ensure glampers can fully relax and satisfy a craving for the outdoors without worrying about traditional camping chores, a glamping concierge facilitates everything from scheduling daytime activities to starting campfires at night – even delivering hot cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit and coffee to glamping tents every morning. Synonymous with a hotel concierge, the glamping concierge is available 24-7 as part of any glamping reservation at no additional cost.

For glampers seeking even more cowboy adventure, Westgate River Ranch offers a variety of activities: an authentic cattle drive, horseback riding, trap and skeet shooting, archery, a dinner hayride with a singing cowboy, mechanical bull, swamp buggy and airboat rides. Weekend guests can also attend the longest-running Saturday night championship rodeo in Florida, with trick riding, bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing, followed by line dancing and a street party at the River Ranch Saloon.

For more information about Westgate River Ranch or to book, visit www.westgateriverranch.com or call 863-692-1321 and use code “IGW2015.”
