The grasslands of the Flint Hills are desired by cattlemen all over the nation.  Thousands of cattle arrive every year from out of state to be turned out onto the lush native grasses of the Flint Hills.  Other areas of agricultural production include various grain crops such as milo, soybeans, wheat and corn. 

Morris County is home to the Council Grove Federal Reservoir which is host to thousands of visitors each year.  There is a lot of good fishing, water skiing, boating, and camping done at the reservoir.  Besides the Federal Reservoir Morris County has a city owned lake just outside of Council Grove and a privately owned lake in the southeast corner of the County known as Lake Kahola.
