Question about Oliver Lee Memorial State Park Campground

Shelley asked on 3/1/2022

Can anyone verify whether NM state parks are only open to NM residents for overnight camping? A state website indicates so but don't see it anywhere else. Thanks!

NM has an annual pass for their state parks that's a great deal for out of stater's. It's $225 or $250 (can't remember) to park in any state park site for free if no electricity and $4 a night with electricity. They are still selling them so ...

It is open to anyone but on reservation basis only. From a NM resident who called the park.

That was posted in 2020. I would highly doubt that's still in effect and don't see any mention of it on the website. Easiest/fastest would be to call. 1-877-664-7787

Not true. I live in MN, not NM, and just stayed there 3 nights last month.
