This was our first stay at Scottville Riverside Park. For us it was a peaceful stay and a pleasant warm June weekend. We liked the Pere Marquette River which makes a great bend right at the park. This was great for fishing, or just relaxing, on the benches or look out decks. There is canoe and kayak rental across the street - and it is fun to watch them come down the river. It looks like there is a unique antique/junk store in Scottville that we will visit on another occasion. We also traveled a few miles East to Custer to Sanders Meat - an incredible real butcher shop - with lots of home made and local raised meat, jerky, sausage etc. We had a few surprises that were somewhat awkward. Having never been there we just selected a spot on the reservation map. The instructions simply say "when you arrive - go right to your spot and set up, and then come to the office and register." We circled around twice only to find out the site numbers made no logical sense. We were assigned site 43, which as it turns out is actually labeled site 51...which was occupied. The new manager, Jennifer, was very helpful, and gave us site 41..two sites from 51. The sites in the center loop were large - about 60 feet by 120 feet. That's nice until we realized our electrical plug in was ...2 sites away, and it took 3 extension cords to reach our site. (Jennifer loaned us one) and another camper loaned us another. And had someone occupied the site next to us...the electrical cord would have been right in front of their fire pit. The water was also a ways away - taking 3 hoses to make the connection. A frequent camper there told us we had the worst site just for that reason. However, the seasonal people were very friendly and helpful. As we looked at other sites - they all seemed reasonable distance to water and we now know to make a different choice. The pool looked nice but we had other activities in the area so we did not get to swimming. The rest room was not as clean as it could be - more lights and a brighter paint job would help. I am sure we will return for some time there next year. It is a great get away.

Very nice laid back campground. It was also very quiet. My only reason for not leaving 5 stars is the water and electric hook ups were in very odd spots and unless you have very long hoses (at least where we were at) it was hard to find a good place to park our camper. But the sites were nice and big. It was a great park.


Nice park. Clean and spacious. Very nice managers.

Dorothy Pilot

Patrick Dingman

A wonderful place! The staff is second to none. Always clean and welcoming.

Renee Snodgrass

The park staff was very kind and accommodating. They showed us around before the day of the event, and dragged some picnic tables over for us. People interested in using the primitive pavilion should know that it's not visible from the rest of the park and there's a campsite right in front of it that can block access, so it may not be the best choice for a public event.

Jeffrey Suggs

What I like about Riverside park is the cleanliness and the great caring staff, we will continue to camp there year after year

Sandra Turk

The staff are so friendly.... and they draw the friendliest campers around! It’s like a fun neighborhood! People are very inviting and kind. We got a tour of a 5th wheel that we liked, and was invited into a birthday celebration! We love it here!

Riverside park was a great place to camp. We liked it so much we went back for another week. Large lots with all the amenities. Easy access for our large toy hauler. One of my favorite things was the great trails in the woods by our site where I could walk my twin cocker spaniels. Very well maintained, beautiful park. Couldn't hardly believe the great low cost daily fee. We drive a little over 4 hours to get there but it's well worth it. Look forward to going up next summer.

The park was clean and well kept. Easy access and parking. There were two sets of bathrooms for guests to use. But the one that was closest to our camp was under construction ( being re-roofed) so it was closed. They (construction crew) were working on it for over three days. The bathroom is not that big and should only have taken one or at the most one and a half days to complete. The only other problem that I encountered was that every time I went into the bathroom someone had been smoking in there. I am a non-smoker and it really bothers me when people that smoke don’t have the common decency to keep their crappy addiction to themselves. The staff were very kind and helpful. I would stay here again in the future.
