This is a Boondockers Welcome host in Stanwood, WA
Max Rig Size
< 30 (ft)
Same Day Requests
Just 5 miles off of I-5 in Smokey Point, 48 miles North of Seattle. In the Seven Lakes area. Wooded property just off of the main route. Depending upon parking placement leveling will likely be required. 15 amp Power available. Water fill-up is also available but would prefer it not be a continuous hookup. Because of Our Trees, a Wi-Fi Booster is recommended for the strongest connection. There is also two state rest areas "on the way" to/from our location on I-5 heading North bound or South bound that have a dump station and potable water. One before you arrive(if traveling South Bound) or just past us if you're heading North it's the next exit. Because of the inevitable growth in our area there's more than road noise than we'd like and is more noticeable now, it varies depending on what time of year, but isn't too bad from inside a rig. Suggested Local Attractions: Near Multiple lakes and 5-10 minutes to Puget Sound, shopping, a couple of The Tulalip Tribe Casinos, The Angel of the Winds Casino and multiple restaurants.

Access Road Conditions: We're looking forward to hosting you! Access turn onto/into 1/8 of a mile gravel driveway is TIGHT, but if you know your rig well and make a wide turn you shouldn't have a problem. We've had many larger delivery trucks and gravel trucks able to make it. We have a turn around/circular area in the driveway for getting out. We own an Adventurer Truck Camper and tree limbs have been cut to allow access. Some leveling will likely be required(especially depending on parking placement). Depending upon conditions parking is either Driveway or grass area. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Driveway

Explored the scenic natural areas and spent two lovely evenings here listening to the rain. Great to meet Karen and Susan! Kind, communicative, welcoming me when I arrived, showing me where to park. Thanks for the respite. I’d love to return in the future. Recommended!

This was our first stay out of boondocking for 2 long months in little towns so had many errands to run and we miss on the opportunity to sit and talk with Susan and Karen. They are very welcoming and we could recharge ourselfs sleeping at their place for 5 nights. Water and 15 amps was a great opportunity for us. very peaceful and quiet. thank you again

We enjoyed our stay. Karen and Susan had great communication! Definitely follow their instructions for turning in the driveway. Karen made sure to cut some branches out of the way for our tall motorhome to get in. It was a hot day so it was nice to be able to park in the shady driveway. Quiet place, would come back again!

Our hosts responded lightening fast to our request to stay, which was very appreciated. Also, they provided easy to follow, accurate additional directions to their spot; Garmin is good, but there's no substitute for first hand info. Their shaded glade with it's small curated spaces is restful, calming and a lovely spot to stay. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Susan & Karen were wonderful hosts and their lava rock pad for the camper provided a great foundation for our camper. The directions they gave for us got us safely in their driveway and backing into the site was easy. They were grascious hosts who communicated with us and answered any questions we had. They gave us driving tips to get to their place and also made recommendations for our drive through Seattle. The trees on their property were gorgeous. We felt safe, relaxed, and at ease. Thanks for a fantastic visit.
