All 50 states have set aside public land for residents and visitors to enjoy. This land is classified as “State Parks.” Activities at state parks may include camping, biking, hiking, fishing, picnicking. Many parks offer nature trails and horse trails, as well as educational programs that teach visitors about the local ecosystem or history.
Some state parks have annual passes that discount camping fees as does the New Mexico camping pass. Other states like Colorado require entrance fees in addition to camping fees. An annual state park pass is an economical way to keep costs down for frequent visitors.
