I bought a pass at a ranger station in Florida Ocala National Forest for $20 per annum then when the ranger asked to see my driver's license to prove age and signature she took the pass away from me but she realized I was Canadian and said I had to be American to have this past. Am I going to run into this problem with BLM or state park passes?

You want the Interagency Pass. The ranger should have told you about it. The pass will give you a year of free access to all federal sites that charge admission but will not get you half price camping that is available for US citizens over 62. https://store.usgs.gov/pass

 BLM sites almost always have free admission for everyone.. Boondocking is almost always free for everyone. Long term camping passes for BLM sites in Arizona and California can be bought by Canadians for the same price as US citizens.

 State park passes should also be available to everyone.
