    Riverside Riverside is a campground with an exceptional view of Bartlett Dam. Because of the close proximity to water, fisherman and avid water recreationalist enjoy this spot all year long. Riverside is less busy than most of our recsites near water because it only allows non-motorized boats. The Verde River and the riparian area are ideal for bird watching. Bald eagles are occasionally seen here.
