Hello,
Does anyone have any tips on accommodation for huai kha khaeng wildlife sanctuary? I can't seem to find much information on the internet.

Thanks!

I can't help as I have not been for a few years - but I often visit Lan Sak (nearest "large" town about 10-15 ks away) and accommodation and food is not the area's strong point.

Theres some mention of more local accommodation, to HKK,  in this thread :

another thread here

If I am in the area I usually stay at Pla Ra Homestay (its not a homestay)  but thats about 40 minutes from the HKK gate. Another option is Lan Sak which has a couple of small bunglaow places (sorry don't know names) and is about 35 minutes from the HKK gate.
Third option is the village at the HKK turn (2 minutes from gate) - see the link above for that.
No idea if they ever re-opened the camp site.

For anybody who's like me and just carries a small tent around, a nice place to pitch it is Thap Salao Dam Park, about 6km south of HKK.  There're great views across the lake, not so many people, about 6 different concrete shelters and some toilets.  It's not an official camping area but it's deserted after dark so you should be fine setting up 7pm onwards and taking down before 6am.

Campsite at HKK is still closed.  Not possible to stay inside HKK.
