Excellent chalets and camping
A road leads from the park headquarter buildings up the hill to the north, where a selection of chalets plus a camp site are found.
They’re well spread out - so some of them quite a walk - but all are pleasantly situated. Some of the larger chalets are splendidly sited with wide balconies providing great views down the slopes. Being national park lodges, the chalets are functional so no fancy Lanna-style trimmings, but interiors are comfortable with air-con, hot water showers and blankets provided. Select a chalet bearing in mind the location of the restaurant and whether you have transport or not. You are best to book in advance – especially if your trip falls over a weekend -- and the easiest thing to do is book direct on the Thai national parks department website rather than contacting Doi Phuka. If you do chance just turning up during a quiet period it’s worth asking for a reduction.
