Area attractions[edit]

  • Fall River Lake & State Park, featuring facilities for boating, camping, hiking, hunting and other outdoor recreational activities, is located approximately four miles northwest of the city of Fall River.
  • The Iron Horse Bike Trail, proposed in the 2013 Kansas Statewide Rail-to-Trails Plan, would connect to the Western Sky Trail at its eastern terminus in Fredonia, Kansas, and to the Redbud Trail at its western terminus in Augusta, Kansas, and would have run through Fall River. Failure to pay the real estate taxes on the section of the trail from Severy, KS to the east Greenwood Co. line meant that the trail right-of-way reverted to adjacent land owners.
