Comments

Can I pay an annual state park site fee online?  If so, how?  I live in Texas and am considering an annual permit for developed camp sites in the state parks in New Mexico because I travel to New Mexico frequently to fish.   Teh state park I am particularly interested in for my 8-day stay Monday- Sunday, June 16-June 22, is Clayton Lake State Park.  Thank you.
