  • Riverside Park West  is located in the southeast corner of the City along the Muskegon River where residents and visitors can enjoy the riverside walking trail, as well as boat and canoe access. This 17-acre park offers many active recreation facilities including a splash pad, beach volleyball, shuffleboard courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, and playground areas. Two pavilion areas are available by reservation.  There is camping available for RV's, trailers, campers and tents.  To make reservations, contact Evart City Hall at 231-734-2181.
  • Riverside Park East  is located on the east side of the river across from the Riverside Park West. It is a newer 33-acre park. It is a great place to take a scenic stroll or catch a glimpse of the local wildlife. There is primitive camping for tents only (No RV's, trailers or campers) and it is first come/first served.  The rate is $12 per night.  Please use the provided envelopes and place your payment in the blue pay tube near the parking lot.
  • Both parks feature a viewing/fishing platform over the Muskegon River. 
  • Due to persistent vandalism, the bathrooms and showers at Riverside East will not be open 24/7 this season unless we know we have campers on site. Bathrooms are open during the day but locked at night unless campers are present.  Potable water is available near the pavilion.
