The Riverside Cemetery, also called the Mayol Cemetery, is situated about ten miles north of Buena Vista and east of Highway 24, along the Arkansas River. (Sec. 12, T13S, R79W, 6th P.M.)
There are six distinguishable graves within the wooden fence. Other possible graves are outside of the fenced area.
