Key West! Bluewater Key reservation made!

It's May and I'm barely recovered from cold weather, but we're already thinking about this winter. We just made reservations for 9 nights at Bluewater Key in Key West, FL.

Site #49, waterfront with tiki hut and a boat dock.

I CANNOT WAIT!

Now, next to figure out a propane campfire since no fires are allowed...

(edit to change "oceanfront" to "waterfront" since it's a bay and I'm pendantic)

DAMN! Enjoy. We just LOVED Key West. Our trip to the keys was a trip of a lifetime for us. It'll be a few years before we return, but we will.

Enjoy (and you suck...) HA!

dad,
When are your reservations for and what are they charging? We couldn't get anything for February.

Thanks.

SKnight, there are 2 rental places for Bluewater Key:
bluewaterkey.net
bluewaterkey.com

I emailed both around the end of the year looking forward to this winter. Both of them weren't scheduling until April/May, so they were putting together lists. The .net folks couldn't accommodate our schedule, but the .com folks have us set for a waterfront site.

We had set travel dates, so it was a little nervewracking to see if we could get in there or not. If they both turned us down, we were bailing on Key West entirely.

So it's the same place, but managed by two different outfits? That's odd, but whatever.

I'm in Maryland (grew up in PA and still go back often, though).

9 nights at the park. Figuring it'll take us 5 nights to get there and 4 to get back.

My trip down is planned for:
Day 1: To Kosmo Village RV Campground (130 miles)
Day 2: To South of the Border RV (275 miles)
Day 3: To Country Oaks Campground (310 miles)
Day 4: To Jonathan Dickinson State Park (310 miles)
Day 5: Arrive Bluewater Key (240 miles)

We have a traveling average of about 45mph once we factor in stops.

Yep. All of the lots are privately owned. So, it's 2 different rental agencies for the same "RV resort".

I think .net is slightly cheaper than .com - but at the end of the day, this is a vacation and we were paying whatever we were paying.

Looks like our nightly rate works out to be $175/night. The 9 nights are running us $1,569.38.
