Rules and Policies

2024 Summer/Fall Season from

May 1 through October 31, 2024


New Minimum Length Requirement:

To better accommodate the growing popularity of Class B motorhomes, vans, and travel trailers, we are reducing the minimum length requirement to 16 feet. This change directly responds to the increased demand of many travelers eager to explore the beautiful Florida Keys with more compact and versatile vehicles. All vehicles must be commercially built RVs and fully self-contained.

Class B Vans – Enhanced Flexibility:

Understanding that those who travel in Class B vans often rely on their vehicle as their sole means of transportation, we are adjusting our policies to offer more flexibility. Class B vans can now come and go daily between 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM. This adjustment ensures that our guests can enjoy their stay at Bluewater Key while taking full advantage of day trips to Key West or any other local attractions without the hassle and expense of getting a rental vehicle.

What if the lot is damaged?

Who is responsible for personal injuries or damage?

The resort is not responsible for personal injuries or damage, loss or theft of any personal property or vehicle.

Boat Owner ALERT!

Water depth is very shallow in the surrounding bay at the resort. It can be as shallow as 12” – 18” around the Saddle Bunch Keys and will not accommodate deep-draft boats. Find nautical charts at WWW.NAUTICALCHARTS.NOAA.GOV.

Please read our page on BOATING.

Also, maximum length of boat cannot exceed 24 ft.

Hurricanes? We got you covered!

Bluewater has a very generous and forgiving policy for this time of the year!

The NOAA National Hurricane Center states that the  Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th

During this season, if the NOAA National Hurricane Center declares a storm to be a  Hurricane (code “H”) or Major Hurricane (code “M”) and either Bluewater Key Luxury RV Resort or your place of residence (as stated on your reservation) is within the NOAA  5 -Day Tropical Cyclone Track Forecast Cone (i.e., cone of uncertainty)  and your reservation dates are within this 5-day forecast window, you may elect to cancel your stay and receive a full refund.  If you are already at Bluewater Key Luxury RV Resort, you may leave early and receive a full refund for unused days remaining in your reservation.

The same policy applies if it is a ‘named’  tropical storm.  

If a mandatory evacuation order is issued for the Florida Keys and you are at Bluewater Key Luxury RV Resort, you will be required to leave, and you will receive a full refund for unused days remaining in your reservation.

Pet Policy

Some visitors enjoy sharing the pleasures of RVing with their dogs, cats, or other companion pets. To ensure that all guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, Bluewater Key®️ RV Resort (BWK) has established a Pet Policy.


Bluewater Key recognizes and accepts Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, and Emotional Support Animals according to the laws established in Florida for such animals. 


  • Pursuant to our Declaration; no farm animals, livestock, or poultry of any kind shall be raised, bred, or kept on any Lot, except dogs, cats, or other companion pets, and then only on a leash. (All) companion pets shall be subject to the rules and regulations of the Association…”
  • Some rental lots are “pet friendly” while others are not.  Please review the site descriptions as to their specific requirements, if applicable.
  • Only two pets are allowed per reservation.

Due to insurance requirements, Bluewater Key does not accept some dog breeds, as follows:


  • Bull Mastiff
  • Chow
  • Doberman
  • German Shephard
  • Pit Bull
  • Rottweiler


Good behavior is required.  Dogs of any breed or animals that are hostile or aggressive will be asked to leave Bluewater Key, along with their owners.

Bring the leash! Dogs must be kept on leashes no longer than 6 feet when outside their owners’ recreational vehicles. Do not leave a tethered dog unattended at any time.

Remember manners. Constant barking bothers other campers and may be considered a nuisance, which is prohibited.

Bluewater Key has a “Dog Park” for your convenience.  Please escort your dog on a leash to the Dog Park for his “chores” and place bagged waste in the proper receptacles provided.  Please do not leave any pet waste on your rental site.

Pool Policies
  • Children under 14 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times when using the pool facilities.
  • Glass containers are not allowed at the pool
Ownership Park Cancellation Policy
