About Us

Riverside State Park Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission and vision geared towards protecting the land and maintaining safe, sustainable recreation for all. The foundation has supported the park since its incorporation in 2002, playing a critical role in helping fund the needs of Riverside State Park. We’re a group of adventurers that enjoy everything from hiking and kayaking to 4×4 and horseback riding. This is our home and we hope that you will join us in supporting and protecting the park for future generations.

"To instill the legacy Riverside State Park into the heart of the community..."

The Riverside State Park Foundation educates and engages people and groups to enjoy, advocate for, and sustain the irreplaceable benefits of recreation, history, beauty, natural resources and cultures of Riverside State Park now and for generations to come.

Foundation Work

Over the past 15 years, the Foundation has raised over $350,000. This money has gone into projects like The Swinging Bridge General Store, the information kiosk at Bowl & Pitcher, trail restoration and the steps at the far end of the swinging bridge that helped with trail erosion. Specific sponsor and grant money have helped us with projects like the equestrian arena and announcers stand, funding the volunteer coordinator position and all the tools needed to keep our volunteers busy.

Recent projects include an installation of 15 security cameras at trail heads significantly helping to reduce crime. We also now have an electrical panel at the Seven Mile Airstrip. We will be adding running water there soon.

Foundation Events

Events are a major way the Foundation helps the park. Events bring revenue and people to Riverside which help increase people’s passion and commitment to the land and the people that use it. We facilitate popular annual events like the Dirty Dash, 24-hour Mountain Bike Race, SCOPE  Despooking Clinic and the BCH Scavenger hunt. We also maintain an online events calendar to help spread the word about park events.
