Wasn't the elephant attack that prompted this caused by fruit?  Not cooking/smoke.

Is that what's its about? I have not been following stuff lately or being getting out and about. I assumed it was a way to reduce "camping trips" by locals. I am probably wrong though seeing as its rainy season in the hills/forests. It is a strange one though.

I think so because Khao Yai was the first one to ban cooking of meats and whatnot at campsites.  That was a direct response to the elephant attack where an old Thai man died.  This just seems an expansion of the same policy to cover all national parks.  I can see the logic behind it but surprised they haven't mentioned fruits.  I'm not an elephant but I would've thought they'd be more attracted to fruit than anything you might cook, particularly the smelly fruits like durian.  But perhaps the smoke from cooking travels on the air further.
