To my knowledge it is not allowed to enter at Ban Rai to drive through the park further North without having the appropiate permits. Not to mention that you would most likely need a well-equipped 4x4 for heavy off-road terrain.

Lan Sak area is the only area of reasonable size with public access (no need for permits). You have to enter at the following entrance: goo.gl/maps/T3PxD
Make sure that you arrive before 16:30, because you won't get in after that!

Be prepared for some frustration if the rangers don't allow you to do the activities you'd like to do.
The rangers are quite friendly there, but they simply have to follow orders from higher up.
