Just 5 miles off of I-5 in the Smokey Point area 48 miles North of Seattle. In the Seven Lakes area. Wooded property just off of the main route.
Some leveling will likely be required. 15 amp Power available but we may have to figure out the connection because our rig is currently using the extension cord. Water fill-up is also available but would prefer it not be a continuous hookup. There is also two state rest areas "on the way" to/from our location on I5 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.

House Rules

Please keep dog/s on a leash. We have 4 free roaming cats that love to explore so use caution when leaving your rig open. We also have Deer, Raccoons, Rabbits, Squirrels, Opossum, several native birds and the occasional coyote. As well as the various neighborhood dogs and cats.

Access Road Conditions

Access turn onto/into
1/8 of a mile gravel driveway is tight. but if you know your rig well 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 "middle" area of the driveway for getting out if needed.
We own an Adventurer Truck Camper and tree limbs have been cut to allow access.
Some leveling likely required.

Solace near the City

Hosts were incredibly accommodating, knowledgeable of the area, friendly and respectful. The directions to the location are spot on, area required a smidge of leveling but was a very accommodating and beautiful spot. Hosts accommodated our chickens, dog and two kids without skepticism and was a joy to chat with when we had the opportunities. Easy pull in and out, You feel secluded but are a hop skip and jump away from town. Locals Espresso coffee shop is a 4 minute walk. Highly recommend these hosts.

Perfect for mid size rigs

Welcoming hosts who deserve an offering for their water and power hookups despite they not ask for it. Would love to visit again.


August 2021

Kind, generous folks

We enjoyed a peaceful, quiet stay with these wonderful hosts. We’d stay again in a heartbeat!

Relaxing Retreat

The host gave great instructions for arrival, helped us get settled, showed me around her beautiful private rain forest!! She showed us options for local parks, restaurant, which we did both! Quiet, relaxing stop on our travels. Highly recommend to “ destress” and slow life down- lol!!

Like being in the forest!

Yes, stayed under tall Cedar, Fir , and Hemlock trees. Open grassy area to park. The ladies were there to welcome me, and came back to check in after I was set up to see if I needed anything. Great place to stay!

This was my first BW experience and it certainly set the standard. These women/owners are exceptionally cordial and helpful and gracious. When I chose to be left alone, i was left alone ... when I asked to chat, they were right out there to chat. The property is lovely, with huge cedar trees all around. You can park in amongst the trees or out in the open. The driveway into their property was a piece of cake, easy to maneuver for my large RAM pickup and a 21-foot trailer. I could hear some road noise during the day because it was warm enough to have my windows open, but at night I heard nothing except peace and quiet. I'd go back here in a heartbeat.

Great stay

Nice spot and accommodating hosts

July 2021

Great place to stay.

We had a great stay with Susan and Karen at Raised by Wolves. A beautiful place with tall trees to provide shade and gracious hosts.


June 2021

Amazing place Amazing people

We loved our stay at this peaceful place. The hosts went out of their way to help keep us cool during the crazy heatwave. This was our first time using Boondockers, now I feel more confident about how everything works.


June 2021

Very accommodating hosts

K and S were great hosts especially for us first-timers. They helped with supplying water and power so we could be comfortable. Beautiful surrounds and peaceful.


June 2021

Wonderful Stay

Susan and Karen were terrific. The setting is just wonderful. I have a 30 foot bumper pull Trailer and a 20 Foot Ram. Being a Newbee, the 50 foot total was a bit challenging getting in and settled. No problem on the departure. If I was bit more experienced, or had a shorter rig, I think it would not have been a challenge. But the stay was just wonderful. Susan and Karen are really great hosts.


June 2021

Very helpful

Amazing trees, wonderful host, beautiful property.
Would definitely stay again. Host was super helpful and knowledgeable!


May 2021

Beautiful PNW spot!

This was our first time using BW, and Susan and Karen could not have been more excellent. We filled up our water as suggested prior to arrival, although they still offered! It’s a beautiful area and we saw three deer one morning just a few feet away from our trailer. We can’t wait to come back!

Base Station!

Loved my stay here! Beautiful location, friendly and generous hosts, all you can ask for!

Base Station!

Susan and Karen provided me a great place to stay for a few days! I originally had planned to stay only a few nights, but ended up staying a few more because I was comfortable there and had everything I needed! The location is close to everything you would need. Got to take my dog to a lake nearby so she could swim! The neighborhood is a perfect little walk that is away from the busy street. Susan and Karen were incredibly friendly and extremely generous! Loved my stay!

Awesome stay.

Fun time at Raised by wolves. They really went the extra mile so we had a comfortable stay. We had great conversations about camping and overall they are really nice people! Thank you again!

Great, Kind and Informative Hosts

I enjoyed my stay at the Base Station of Raised by Wolves-Susan & Karen's Den and they were super kind to me. They gave me lots of very helpful information like using an EMS surge protector for full protection against power-related issues (ie. high/low voltage spikes, reverse polarity, open ground, incorrectly-wired power outlets) that I wish I've known before during my early travels. My spot was pretty level and it's very quiet there at night. Their property is near the Seven Lakes in the Snohomish County, two rest areas with free RV dump (and water), the cheapest propane refill station (in WA) and I just couldn't ask for more.
I would definitely inquire them again for future stay.
Thank you guys !

Nice Stay

There are many near by local conveniences. They were very friendly and accommodating. We have a Tundra with a 30ft trailer and there are a couple tight turns. We did get stuck in the soft grass area, they were very gracious and helped us out using their truck. A shorter trailer or 5th wheel set up probably wouldn’t have any trouble.

Great hosts

These ladies are great hosts. Their property is beautiful and peaceful. They made our first boondocking experience a wonderful.

These two are wonderful hosts and their property is beautiful. They make you feel at home.


August 2020


The hosts were wonderful. They told us about local hikes, North Cascades must sees, and everything in between. Great space and easy to get in and out of (27’ airstream).

Sad to leave. Thanks again!!

Quiet and secluded stay

We had a great stay. Wanted to get in a bunch on sightseeing but also needed to have a day to work and were able to do it all. Host were great, good communication and very gracious. If in the area will definitely stay again.

Very Friendly Hosts

Great to know both hosts and sharing life experiences. It was inspiring and motivating experience for our adventure.


June 2020

In the woods !

Super nice hosts. The moment I pulled in I saw my first deer. And I got to know the adorable cats :-)
The setting is almost like out in the country, feels somewhat rural. Very quiet and peaceful.

I'm not sure where to start... We were having trouble finding a quiet place to stay in WA on our way to the border during the pandemic. After reaching out for a three night stay, we were instantly invited over for 5 nights once they heard about our troubles. The Raised By Wolves Clan were so kind and generous! They stepped out to welcome us off the road, gave us water, power and even let us print some documents before crossing the border. The Den is safe, quiet and peaceful, surrounded by towering cedar trees, and you even get to call four curious kitties and a couple wild deer your neighbours for a few nights. We can't wait to be back. Thanks again!
