Fall River Parks

category : Camping
Fall River Parks Positioned between the crossed timbered area of the Chautauqua Hills to the East and the grasslands of the Flint Hills to the west, this area provides a remarkable diversity of plant and animal life. The forested flood plains, the blackjack savannahs and the tallgrass prairies make this a most interesting place to visit.

If you are looking for a primitive camping experience or a relaxing spot to hook up our RV, Fall River State Park offers it. Exceptional scenic spots can be found throughout the park. The developed campsites include modern restrooms and shower facilities as well as electric and water campsite hookups.
