My family and I have stayed at virtually every possible lodging in the Croton Dam area for the past 30 or so years and for the past 16 ( or since Candy took over management) we have only stayed at the Riverside Resort. We have seen a lot of changes over the years and all have been good and you can tell over that time that it has been a work in progress and a life's dedication for the owner. It isn't fancy but it has everything you need. Everything about the place is friendly and warm. As fishermen we are grateful that the owner has always made sure there was a fish cleaning station for guests to use which is uncommon and very welcomed. We look forward to going back next year and for many years to come. Riverside is close to some of the best fishing spots on the Muskegon. There are quality restaurants nearby, tackle shops and a 10 min drive into Newago. As with the whole region cell phone reception is spotty at best and often unreliable, but the only way to change that are repeated requests from the carriers. There is service in random locations at the resort but you may not find it at your convenience and you would be hard pressed to find it anywhere else consistently as well.
