Visitor number restrictions?

Is Khao Yai NP limiting the number of people that can visit each day?
If so, where does a visitor book a spot? Would it be normal or unusual for the park to reach capacity on a weekday?
Are there limits on the number of camping spots?

They were for a while earlier during  the pandemic. But The computer screens showing the visitor counts etc have disappeared.
Nobody is keeping track anymore. You can just go to the gate and buy a ticket and go in.

Camping is the only thing that can fill up.  Especially with them closing Pla Kluay Mai campsite.  But usually only full on long weekends; on a normal weekday will be fine.  I guess the bungalows that the park rents would also fill up during busy periods but can't speak from experience as I always sleep in a tent.

The DNP website has a function to book camping spots as well as tents and bungalows, but I've never used it.  nps.dnp.go.th/reservation.php
