The state of Arizona, home to the Cannon ranch, has been hit by financial woes like many states during the recession.  The Arizona State Parks Board voted on January 15, 2010 to close thirteen State Parks between February and June in order to cut $8.6 million in costs.  Four other State Parks will remain closed because of previous budget cuts.

Parks with names familiar to High Chaparral fans and sites mentioned in the series include Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park, Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park and Tubac Presidio State Historic Park.  The town of Tombstone is separate from the courthouse itself.

Other parks to be closed include  Homolovi Ruins State Park in Winslow, Lyman Lake State Park in St. Johns and Riordan Mansion State Historic Park in Flagstaff, Fort Verde State Historic Park in Camp Verde, Roper Lake State Park, Tonto Natural Bridge State Park near Payson, Alamo Lake State Park in Wenden, Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction, Picacho Peak State Park and Red Rock State Park in Sedona.
