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

    Susan and Karen were great - very accommodating and welcoming. We arrived after dark in a driving rainstorm, having been delayed by a three-hour wait to cross the border, but they still came out to welcome us and help us choose a good level spot. We had a quiet, peaceful night and a good sleep, and hope to return next time we’re travelling through. Thanks, Karen and Susan!!

    beautiful setting in cedar and hemlock. We could hear local road noise, but otherwise silent. You can tell the hosts care about their spot and try to make it nice.

    We felt cozy and welcome by our hosts. We got to have conversations separately with each wife and both were a joy to talk with. What interesting lives they have lived.

    We were worried about getting into the site, especially since it was only the second time we stayed with a Boondockers Welcome host. But our hosts communicated with us several times, giving very helpful suggestions, and we got in without a hitch. We bought the wrong kind of electrical connection and were dismayed; but our hosts loaned us everything we needed to set up camp. The parking was a little uneven; but if we had a better leveling system it would have been more than fine. Our hosts gave us the privacy we desired, but also made themselves readily accessible for anything we might need. We spent a lovely evening with them in their backyard the final night as we sat around a fire pit that they prepared for us to enjoy with them over conversation and wine. We highly recommend this host for your stay.
