If you need an early start
The official national park accommodation is variously sized chalets ranging from three people rooms through to larger eight-room buildings.
The bungalows are perfectly adequate -- they come with hot showers, are fan-cooled and are set just off the road in a grove of trees -- but overall we’ve seen much smaller and less frequented national parks with much better facilities. There is also a campsite. The accommodation is found 500 metres back down Route 1284 in the Hmong village of Khun Klang, around 7 kilometres from the main park entrance. The park administrative buildings are just west of the village. Fortunately the village is very close by since there are no restaurant facilities with the chalets.
