When we planned our trip to Disney World in 2006, I thought my husband would think I was nuts if I suggested we extended our trip and went to Key West as well. We had already planned on driving, and towing our 27' travel trailer to stay at Disney's campground. To my surprise, he agreed. I didn't want to stay at just any campground near Key West (not that there are many down there anyway). I came across Bluewater Key's website and was in awe of the pictures. It was breathtaking. I did as much research as I could and found other people online that had stayed there before. It came highly recommended. The sites are individually owned, so you are basically using it when they are not there. The sites sell for around a half-million dollars, if you're in the market.

The lots are decent sized sites and are luxuriously landscaped. Most are right on the water with their own dock and Tiki hut. You can fish or swim right there. There is a nice swimming pool for guests to use as well. There is a clubhouse, but we did not use it. There are full hookups plus cable. One thing to make note of is that they do not allow pop-ups, tents, or truck campers, and for RVs there is a minimum length of 26'. All units are subject to approval.

This is truly a luxury RV resort. It is even gated. It is only 10 miles from Key West, so you are close, but not too close. (If you have ever been to Key West, you know what I mean by "too close"). It is very private. We paid $135 per night for our lot. Before you choke on the thought of paying that much to "camp", it was worth every penny for the experience. Would we do it again? Probably not, only because the 40 hour drive back to Wisconsin was a hard drive. If you will be in the area with your RV, check them out at bluewaterkey.net.

I rated the meal options at a 2.5 because they don't have any on-site meal options, but there are places nearby. Plus, you have your RV so it is possible to make your own meals as we did.
