Situated on the Encampment River, this was once part of the site of rendezvous for mountain men and Native Americans. Although Riverside was never a mining camp, it came into being in 1851 as the result of serving as the gateway to the mining district and as a neighbor to the prominent town, Encampment. Originally named after a man called Dogget who started a store and station, the town eventually came to be known as Riverside.

Soon, cabins were built, and sixty buildings followed. The most noted building being a forty-room hotel that burned and was rebuilt. The copper ran out and the town became a shell of its former glory. Recent growth in tourism has breathed new life into the one-time ghost town.
