The location is on 11 acres 20 miles east of Seattle. The city of Issaquah is 4 miles away. Snoqualmie Falls is about 5 miles away. We are less than 2 miles from I90. Note: the Boondockers app has the location about 3 miles away from actual location.
No smoking on the property, pets are ok if behaved however we do have bear and coyote in the area so there is some risk to outside pets, Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are not welcome. Fresh water can be obtained from our well but the connection is up at the house and big rigs would have difficulty turning around at the house location. Access to an RV dump station is in Issaquah at Sammamish State Park or the private Rv park just as you enter Issaquah. You will be camping by some big trees. If its windy, some trees have fallen but nothing in the area of the shop, but it is a possibility. No food should be left outside the rig overnight or for an extended period of time as the bears, deer and coyotes will be attracted. All garbage should be taken with you. No gifts expected, just enjoy the space.
There is plenty of turnaround room at the location but once you start up the road you will need to go all the way to the location before you can turn around.. You should be able to back your vehicle around a corner. The beginning of our road is steep and a little curvy but the curvy, steep part is very short, 400 to 500 feet. The road is narrow but it only serves 15 houses so it is not well traveled. It is paved all the way to the parking spot. Rigs with tow vehicles might want to disconnect at the bottom of 316th Place SE, before they head up the hill. At the top of the steep part of the road there is a hidden road to the right. Be careful at this intersection as the cars coming out of that gravel road do not always look for vehicles coming up the road. We go up and down with our 24 ft RV and our neighbors have a 22 ft trailer and car going up and down.
Can be parked right next to rv
My husband is not a planner so our schedules are always changing. It is hard to commit very far into the future.
Snoqualmie Falls, Issaquah Fish Hatchery. Seattle, There are bicycle trails at the bottom of our hill that go to Issaquah and also towards the back of the falls. There are also mountain bike trails about two miles away that are easy to bike to. Hiking on Squak Mountain. Parasailing in Issaquah. Wine tasting in Woodinville. First weekend in October the Salmon Days festival in downtown Issaquah celebrates the salmon's return to spawn. Boehm's Chocolate Factory in Issaquah
Preston Woods is a nice quiet shady spot. The hosts were very welcoming.
DO TAKE 316th PLACE.
DO NOT take 316th LANE.
I got mixed up when I was trying to navigate and drive at the same time.
We had a great time. Thus spot really has everything we value... privacy, quiet, and trees. Our dog loves it here.
The Hosts were wonderful and gracious. They were kind enough to spend extra time showing us where we could get the best shade for our stay (much needed in an unprecedented heat wave).
Their property is a stunning setting to camp in and it was one of the best nights sleep we have had in a while.
Thank you so much for the warm hospitality. Hope to see you again this summer in Glacier.
Lovely space among the forest of old growth trees. Hosts are very nice and welcoming. We look forward to another visit. Very convenient to Seattle area.
Conveniently located from the freeway, and still close to conveniences like gas and groceries, yet it’s very wooded and completely private. Plus they’re good people. Could not have gone any better. We will be back!
We had the most lovely peaceful one-night stay in a secluded beautiful lush area with amazing hosts! Very level and set up with a picnic table and rug. Forest trail to hike right outside the door! So very kind and gracious to receive us and greet us as the owner rode in on her bike to say hi! Super sweet and interesting conversation! Offering suggestions on how navigate the city and local area as well. Wished we could have stayed longer and would certainly hope to be fortunate enough to stay again should we pass this way! Highly recommend this incredible host and accommodation!
We had such a nice stay here! It’s on a gorgeous spot, we enjoyed walking around the trails and letting our dog out to run around. The location was close to everything we wanted to go to and the host gave us lots of recommendations on places to go. We highly recommend staying here if you get the chance!
Hosts were very quick with responses and for a newbie everything was beyond what I had hoped for! Site is nestled amongst the trees and very private. Hosts were very gracious and they offered to help us in several ways! We were on a personal “business” trip. Very thankful for their hospitality!
Nice and quiet place to rest in between travels. Looking forward to staying again when back in the area
This was an absolutely lovely spot - so private and quiet. Our hostess met us when we arrived and gave us a warm welcome. Yesterday morning we looked out the window as two deer strolled by. It's got great freeway access and close to major metropolitan areas for conveniences This was our first boondock experience. We can only hope our future ones will this nice! Many thanks to our hostess for her generosity.
We had an amazing time here at Preston Woods! It’s a beautiful spot in nature that’s super quiet and really peaceful. Our host greeted my friend and I and showed us around a bit. There’s a picnic table and space to walk around. Nice and big flat area that’s perfect for RVs and vans. We had a wonderful nights rest and there was no pressure to leave early which was perfect for us late risers. Thank you!
We loved this place! It was actually our first time using this website and we had such a positive experience. The host was very communicative and informative. They gave us great suggestions for biking in the area. The space we parked at was beautiful and perfect. It's like you're in your own little forest oasis! It's the perfect distance right off the highway and plenty of things to do in the area. Would highly recommend!
Super family host and delicious well water. Very quiet and peaceful place. Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area is a great place for swimming with prestine water. We saw beautiful Snoqualmie Falls. Thank you so much for the host generosity.
Enjoyed visiting with our host While keeping Covet19 distances. It's a nice large, Flat Open Area With a picnic table too. Getting our water tank filled was very easy And the water taste very good. It was a very nice quiet restful stop And I would Highly recommend a stay if in the area.
We really enjoyed our stay at mlingelkdunont’s property. Really private, flat space that we had no problem getting to in our 29’ Class C motorhome. Enjoyed chatting with them as well :)
Always, quiet and private. This is our favorite place to stay when we visit Seattle.
Another beautiful and peaceful stay at this location. It is my favorite for when I visit Seattle.
This was a nice quiet place to stay and very peaceful. The site is surrounded by beautiful trees and is a very nice place to stay. The host was very friendly and came out to greet us and make sure we were doing fine. I hope to stay here in the future.
Such a beautiful and peaceful place. The host were so kind. They suggested places for us to go in our travels and we have put them on our schedule. The place they have for you to camp is very level and not too hard to get in and out of. The road in is skinny and steep but we had no problems in out 30ft RV with a 17ft trailer for our car and motorcycle. Definitely worth a do over if we ever make it back to washington
So very peaceful and helpful! Great directions provided and they still met me at the bottom of the hill to make sure I made it up ok as it is a bit narrow! I was welcomed with great conversation and offers to help set up! After some conversation of area trails and wineries she went up to the house, unbeknownst to me and printed off several area trails! So nice! The picnic table was really nice to have dinner at as well! Location is ideal to so much and at the same time you sit surrounded by quite and nature. Lovely spot and would definitely recommend!! Thanks so much!!
Beautiful secluded spot off I90. Very comfortable and convenient and incredibly secluded for being so close to the interstate
This was my first boondocks welcome host experience. The host provided excellent directions and greeted me with a friendly smile upon arrival. I immediately felt welcomed and sensed a pride of ownership that you cannot find in a public campground or private RV park. The property had a woodsy feel to it, which is well maintained. I was instructed to park my RV in a private area located away from their home. I loved that there's a picnic table beside my parking space because I love eating my breakfast outside in nature. I enjoyed staying at this perfectly level ground with quiet surroundings, friendly host location.
Mlingle is a great host and most helpful! Great quiet place surrounded by trees near Snoqualmie falls .. I would recommend it !☺️
Beautiful spot in a very quiet place. Lots of wild flowers and wild life. We saw a coyote! Easy to get here, follow the directions and not google maps. Had no problem turning around with a 25' rv with a small trailer.
Our hosts were very welcoming. We loved the quiet spot with just the sound of chirping birds.
The drive up is indeed steep as the hosts indicated with some blind turns but we had no problems getting up with our 31ft 5th wheel and the spot was nicely leveled and even had a picnic table.
We would love to visit again.
This was our very first Boondockers Welcome experience and our hosts made it a pleasure. Preston Woods was our base camp for 2 nights, while we attended college graduation activities for our son. It was even more beautiful than the pictures and description! Both nights were very peaceful and it was wonderful to wake up surrounded by trees, lush greenery and wildflowers. The directions to get there were precise and easy to follow and pulling in and setting up was a breeze. Because our schedule was packed, we were only able to meet one of our hosts briefly, but she was very kind, understanding and welcoming. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it!
We greatly enjoyed our quiet stay on Marcia and Kevin’s property. They have 11 acres in the forest on the top of the hill at the end of the road, and they were extremely gracious hosts. Would love to camp in their beautiful forest reserve again if we ever get the chance.
A couple of the most welcome people I’ve ever met! Amazing property with great proximity to Seattle. If you stay here, follow the instructions coming in, they are detailed and very helpful.
Beautiful place and such hospitality from our hosts! Very sweet couple that loves their home. The place to park our rig was level and surrounded by forest and friendly deer 🦌. We hope to stay again in the future. Thank you!
Access road was a little steep to start but no biggie. We did not encounter another vehicle on the way in but it would be a little tight in spots if we did. The site was a little rocky but surprisingly level. Our hosts were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable about the area. Preston is fairly small but Issaquah is nearby and has everything you could possibly need to resupply or enjoy a night out. Plenty of good hiking trails in the area. We would definitely stay here again.
Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Site was very level and quiet. Great hikes nearby including Issaquah which is a cool town. We would definitely stay there again.
After greeting Marcia, we quickly found a nice, level spot for our motorhome. The nights were quiet, the sleep was very good. In the morning, we enjoyed the beautiful forest scenery and the privacy. Marcia and Kevin were both very friendly and helpful. We're very glad that we stayed at Preston Woods!
I delighted in sharing your property with you... especially the forest green and overall natural ambiance. I hope we get to meet again as families. May you enjoy your continuing adventures.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kevin and Marcia's. They were friendly and accommodating. Their acreage is in a beautiful forest and very quiet. Our site was large, flat and private. We appreciate their hospitality. We hope to see them again the future.
John and Carrie
Preston was ideal for visiting Seattle and Snoqualmie hikes. Hosts were very helpful and interesting to talk with. Our young kids loved the acerage.
We had a fantastic stay at Preston Woods. They welcomed us with short notice and even met us at the end of the road to block traffic so we could easily get through the narrow road. Our space was private and served as a great base camp for our adventures to Seattle and Redmond. Lots of things to do within 20-30 miles. We enjoyed some nice conversation with our hosts and highly recommend them. Thank you for your hospitality!
