It is quite discouraging at the moment for those who know the park as it was a year ago.

I went today thinking the road was open to the base of the hill past Baan Krang however its far worse than expected with the road ending at the camp ground and the rangers not allowing anyone to walk on the road past the campsite (this is what they told me today) leaving little to do and little to see

Also difficult for me to comprehend is the massive increase in the entry price for foreigners to 300 baht and the thai fee increased to 100 baht.  Not really worth it unless you plan to camp.

I actually feel bad for all the bird photographers and tour guides, they have very little to work with.

For my opinion, probably best to avoid this park until they get their heads around what the plan will be going forward, at this moment there seems to be none
