A very nice guest!

It was very nice to have Steve boondock in our neighborhood cup-de-sac driveway as he visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We enjoyed some very nice conversation, and even took a walk with our beagle. Steve was a courteous guest, and we'd be pleased to host him again.

Best stay ever

What a perfect site. Private = Power = Water - Even a super, outdoor shower. But best of all a fabulous host. Shared some fine moments with Steve. Ken


October 2020

Peaceful and beautiful

Sparky was waiting for us to direct us in. Gave us area booklet and also a pamphlet he and his wife made of area things to do, see, eat, groceries etc.
We enjoyed our peaceful spot to sleep after running around all day. They have an awesome outdoor shower we didn't take them up on because the temp dropped 10 degrees and I'm a cold weather sissy. Such a beautiful area. Very grateful for Sparky to open up their place for us.


October 2020

Sparked full of hospitality

Sparky was so kind to let me stay at his place at the last minute. He helped with everything including backing in and electric and sharing some wine and great conversation There was an immediate rapport that made me feel very comfortable. He also has all kinds of information on the area and Wi-Fi and An outdoor Enclosed shower! What a treat to be able to stay at a place in such a gorgeous area. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Everything One Could Want

Welcoming hosts, electricity, water, hot outdoor shower, and great bike trails just down the street. What more could a boondocker want? This was our second visit and there will likely be a third. Thank you Sparky!


September 2020

GREAT stay!

Awesome 1st experience with Boondockers Welcome! Our stay at Sparky's couldn't have been better... Despite Covid restrictions !! We kept to ourselves and SO appreciated the privacy your site offers. We love everything about Eastham and all it has to offer and we love you for making our visit on Labor Day weekend possible (when all the surrounding campgrounds were booked).


September 2020


This was our first stay, it was perfect. Great hosts!!


December 2019

Great host in a great place.

Outstanding hospitality, from his home-made chowder and cookies to his heavenly outdoor shower. All of Cape Cod right outside his driveway. What a treat having so special a host in so special a place.


December 2019

Down to earth people with big hearths

To stay at Sparky's felt just like being at home. We had great conversations and really appreciate every advice on where to go on Cape Cod. Thanks a lot for your warm welcome. You're very welcome whenever you come to Leipzig.

Absolute santuary on Cape Cod

Wonderful secluded property on Cape Cod. Perfectly located to access all that Cape Cod has to offer. Hosts were so welcoming and provided a list of everything available from dining to sightseeing. After two months on the road with rec center and campground showers, their outside shower was heaven. I did not want to leave.


October 2019

Tranquil Retreat

The property was wonderful, especially the hot outdoor shower. It’s so secluded and quiet! We really appreciated all the useful local area information and used it during our stay. The host was very helpful and answered all our questions.


October 2019

Great Hosts and Very quiet location.

Steven & Cathy are great Boondocking Hosts, they provided a lot of information and brochures about the area and the major attractions. We had a problem with our TOAD so had to depart 1 day earlier then planned. Our short visit to Cape Cod was made much more pleasant because of this great Boondocker Hosts. Thank you both.


October 2019

Thank You

I want to thank you for providing a Boondockers Welcome spot at your place. Perfect size, perfect location, perfect hosts!

I travel with a 23’ travel trailer and a pickup truck. My vehicles fit with a little bit of room to spare. Perfect!

The place is located in the heart of Cape Cod. Plenty of things to do in the immediate area, and just under a half hour to the tip of Cape Cod.

Wait until you meet your host! They will really SPARK your interest in the area with all the information and knowledge of the area in which they live. I had no idea what Marconi was, until they started explaining it and getting excited about it. Amazing history in this area.

Before coming to the area, check the gas prices. I paid $2.99/gallon while visiting Cape Cod, and $2.49/gallon an hour away from the area.

Go. Visit. Now!

Our stay on Cape Code for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary

We had a great stay at Sparky's location for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary. This was our first time using a Boondockers Welcome host and it was great. Although our hosts had to be away for the time we stayed, we still got every question answered by them in a very timely fashion. They made the stay so comfortable in such a beautiful place on the Cape. We absolutely love Cape Cod and always have, so it was so nice to be able to stay on the Cape for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary. We "weathered" the storm Dorian, which followed us up the east coast from Florida. Little did we know when we booked this spot, that the storm would visit us but it worked out fine. Our hosts made great suggestions as to were to get great local seafood and we tried Arnold's Clam Bar (which they suggested) and it was awesome. We will definitely go there again! We also went to Chatham and also to Captain Parker's Pub in Yarmouth. Both places were very easy to get to from Sparky's. We give this host location and our hosts top rating and we will absolutely stay there again sometime! We look forward to meeting them the next time we stay. We highly recommend this host!

Outdoor shower for the win!!

Sparky and his wife were fantastic hosts! Boondockers welcome should pay them haha. They give you a packet of information and are as helpful as you want them to be. Great order shower right next to van spot.
Thank you!


August 2019

Great central location on Cape Cad

Steve and Cathy are amazing host's. They have a nice quiet place centrally located on Cape Cod. Steve is a wealth of information and is really nice to talk to. He gave me several pamphlets with tons of info on what to do. He knows the area very well and gives great suggestions. I booked for 2 nights and ended staying 3. I could stay here for weeks. This is definitely a place to come back to.


August 2019

Great Cape Cod Location

Great place. Great people. Our 26 ft Jayco fit just fine with room to walk around it. Parked our F150 perpendicular in front. Loved the outdoor shower, hammock, and clothesline for drying swimsuits. Hosts were wonderfully hospitable. You can tell they truly love sharing their home location with visitors. We appreciated all their advice and guidance, especially our visits to Herring Pond and Rock Harbor. Come stay with us in Indiana soon!

We had the time of our lives at Sparky’s Host location! There is SO much to do and they are the most enjoyable people to chat with. Would LOVE to stop by again one day! Thanks for having us!


June 2019

Wonderful hosts

We wanted to stay longer (and our hosts graciously invited us) but we had a schedule to keep and had to move on. The location is perfect. We loved the bike trail just down the road. Our hosts were welcoming and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon visiting together. It was a wonderful time and hard to leave. Thank you!!


May 2019

Great stay

This was a perfect spot for us on a quick visit to the Cape. Our van fit in the spot nicely and we enjoyed two quiet nights. Our hosts were away, so we didn't have the chance to meet them, but hope to return at some point when they are there. The outdoor shower was great!


May 2019

Greay couple

Nice and quiet road that was easy to park. Electric and water were available also. When we met them they gave us pamphlets with things to do as well as where things were. Very convenient location with the cape cod rail trail at the end of their road. Definitely stay here if you are in the area. Very warm and accommodating hosts.

Great spot!

We didn't get to meet them because they were elsewhere visiting family, but we had a great stay! Centrally located on the Cape, it was easy to get everywhere we wanted to visit. They also had power, water, and an outdoor shower for us to use! Thanks for a great visit, Sparky.


April 2019

Great location on the Cape

We had a wonderful stay, easy to find, centrally located spot on the Cape in a nice very quiet neighborhood. Our hosts provided lots of suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable and we look forward to future visits! Would highly recommend.

Cape Cod Cozy

The hosts were wonderful! She greeted me with pamphlets, maps and information about the area, he welcomed me with a beer and a Red Sox game. Absolutely love the outdoor shower! Great location, central to everything in Cape Cod. Will definitely stay here again!


October 2018

Experienced hosts

We enjoyed our stay and the hosts. They came right out with informational papers and pamphlets of things to do in the area; including their favorite spots to eat and visit. It felt like a RV hotel with an outdoor shower! We highly recommend staying here if you are going to be visiting the Cape.


September 2018

Awesome Experience

We stayed two nights at Sparky's recently and it was awesome. Our hosts were so wonderful--friendly and helpful. We spent about an hour sitting with them our last morning just visiting--they make you feel like old friends. The accommodations were more than we could have expected--the hot shower was the BEST!!!!


September 2018

Perfect stay

Thanks so much for this stay. Everything was so uncomplicated and a great expirience for us RV-firsttimer. Eastham is a perfect place for exploring cape cod (we had our bikes with us). And it‘s true, you have to try out the openair shower. Awesome! Unfortunately we did not meet the hosts. But we are sure, that they are wonderful people!


September 2018

Beautiful Spot

Beaitiful spot in the yard, right next door to an amazing outdoor shower and hammock, friendly hosts and near the beach and shops and restaurants - great experience!


September 2018

Quiet and convenient Cape stay

These folks are absolutely top notch! Concierge of Cape tourism complete with maps and guides. We had a beer on the deck together and a great chat. Sadly they had to go out of town but were gracious enough to allow me to stay while they were gone and Cathy even gave me a lovely fresh lavender bouquet from her garden before they left.

The authentic Cape outdoor shower is not to be missed!! Holy cow. It might be the best shower I've ever had!!

I would absolutely love to stay with these folks again if I'm ever back in Massachusetts.

Big heart hug to Steve and Cathy!! ♥️


September 2018

Welcoming and generous

Very warm welcome from Steve and Cathy. They have supplied us with referals for restaurants, beaches and so much more. They have even shared with us some food they have cooked. I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends.

July 2018

Oops..thought I left a reference.

Great hosts! Very welcoming. We sat and chatted for awhile before bed. They didn’t even mind that we travel with 4 Jack Russell Terriers. A wonderful way to start our visit to the Cape. Thank you very much!


July 2018

Friendly accommodating hosts in a great location!

We learned about this site on our drive down to Cape Cod and couldn’t be happier with our first experience! Steve and Cathy were quick to reply, very friendly, and accommodating. The parking spot is very easy to access, quiet, dark at night, and level.

We didn’t get to meet them in person because we left early to see the sunrise, but hope to next time! Thanks for the great experience!


July 2018

A comfortable stopover

This is a great place to boondock on Cape Cod. Our host greeted us warmly when we arrived and provided us with lots of information about things to see and do on the Cape. The outdoor shower and 20 amp electric were an added bonus. We would love to return again the next time we're in the area.


July 2018

Wonderful experience!

We were made to feel so welcome. We really enjoyed getting to know this couple and their local knowledge/recommendations were priceless. The site is shady and comfortable. It's close to the bike trail and bus stops making it easy to get around and see the beautiful sites of Cape Cod. Highly recommemnded!

Great BW Location On Cape Cod With Very Personable Hosts

Spent two nights at this private, shaded, parking spot. However, it was much, much more. Thanks so much for your generosity of 20 amp (it was 95* and we stayed cool), local tips (Young’s Fish Market for a lobster roll and view of Rock Harbor Marina and Beach), and the outside shower (which this Jersey couple really appreciated). Beautiful family in beautiful Cape Cod.


June 2018

Place to be

What a nice bd-ers. We stayed here for two days. We had a great spot with all facillities. Even an outside shower. Get a lot of usefull info about te cape. Saw the whales and enjoyed the beaches. Most of all the kindness and good conversation under a glas of wine. Thnx again and you are welcome to our place anytime. Hope you can rise your flag soon😃


June 2018

Simply Wonderful

Stayed with the Sparky's for 3 nights and we had a wonderful time. They were very welcoming, took us to the local beach where we enjoyed the sunset, and cooked smores over their firepit at the back.
They gave us lists of things to do around the local areas, and brochures for some of the most popular tourist attractions.
They gave us use of their outdoor shower, wifi, water and electricity, and there was even a hammock for us to enjoy the sunshine in.
The location is great, right in the middle of the cape, so you are half way between everything, and right near the major bike trail.
We loved staying here, and have made friends for life, thanks for everything guys, we are going to miss your green slice of paradise!


May 2018

Made us feel so welcome!

We made our request at the last minute and our hosts were very accommodating. We had a perfect stay. It was fun getting to know them and their adorable pup Giselle. They offered electric & water, wifi & area info. They are very knowledgeable about the area which is perfect for a visit to Provincetown. Dont hesitate to request a stay here!


September 2017

Sparky are very nice people. They could not do enough for us. We stayed overnight July 26th. We had a beautiful parking area, nice and quiet, this is as good as it gets. Thank you.


June 2017

Wonderful couple and superb location

We have loved our first trip to Cape Cod and have met the nicest people ever. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality and for providing such an ideal spot for us. All your helpful tips of what to see and do were very much appreciated. We loved the sunset at Rock Harbor and First Encounter Beach. There's so much to do on the Cape there is no way to get it all in during one visit. We'll be back. It was wonderful meeting you both and hope you will visit us when you come to Florida. Thanks so much, Susan


June 2017

Great friends

We are new to this boondocking site and didn’t know what to expect… it was a fantastic and enjoyable first experience. Steve and Cathy are great hosts… friendly and gracious… great couple. Welcomed us upon arrival and showed us where to park and hook up. Had great conversations with them…. many common interests…we made new friends. They gave us several recommendations on what to see and where to eat. They have our highest recommendation. We look forward to visiting them on our next trip to the Cape.


May 2017

Great first experience

Great stay in Sparky's garden. Very nice welcome and kindness with our children (they will remember their first night fire stay with icecream !) :)
Highly recommended if you plan to stay few days in Cap Code, right in the middle.
Thanks again !
