I am a keen angler, I have fished all over the world, in the wild and on stocked lakes. I reside in Thailand and have fished many of the plethora of fishing resorts and parks in the country. The Jurassic Mountain Resort beats all others hands down by the proverbial country mile. Where to start? The surroundings are pristine and immaculately kept. The accomodations are of a verey high standard and as clean as a whistle. There is a small swimming pool, a gym and a gamesroom with free pinball amongst other joys, very useful for keeping kids entertained if you have them along. There ia a lovely bar/restaurant serving excellent Thai, Western and Indian fare, plus all-day breakfasts. Within the confines there isa small tackle and bait area, and two superb freshwater aquariums outside the establishment. That said Jurassic is primarily a fishing resort, there is little to say that the range of species in the main lake is stupendous and the stamp on some of them is stupendous. Anyone with a modicum of angling knowledge is 100% guaranteed to catch a number of examples here. There is also a smaller stockpond where some smaller species are kept to 'grow out' great fun for the youngsters or a welcome respite for those who tire of getting their arms pulled off on the main water. Prices are very fair and if staying a number of days three meals a day are included, plus 2000 Bahts worth of bait every day, only booze and soft drinks are extra. In the evening the guests can mingle over a drnk or two in a lovely atmosphere. All in all a tremendous place, and last but not least the staff are all friendly and ridiculously helpful. At the weekends the owner can be found floating around his fine fiefdom, an affable English chap with many a tale to tell. Totally recommended!!!

From the moment we arrived it was clear that Jurassic Fishing was a special place. We booked a couples package of 3 rods for 5 days (with 6 nights accommodation ). The site itself is spectacular. The rooms are beautiful and immaculate as is the whole site! The food is really good quality and the menu is extensive. The staff are clearly very invested in the fishing resort and are extremely helpful with a focus
Of ensuring you get the most out of your experience with them.
The fishing itself is something else. I am not an experienced fisher - the other half is - I normally read a book, but I have to say that I have had the most amazing time here. I have caught so many monster fish and in 5 days of getting up to fish by 7am until 6pm I haven’t once been bored.
Our stats are:
5 days
56 fish
2,660lbs Estimated
Biggest was 185 arapaima and a 150lb Siamese carp.
Check them out on Instagram or you tube. You won’t be disappointed.

Prepare for a long review ….
Firstly this place is beyond phenomenal and that word doesn’t seem enough !!
From the moment we arrived entering the resort we were met with paradise and very helpful courteous staff. Little did we know that this high level of service and catering to our every need would continue for the whole duration of our stay, arriving at our villa we were dumbfounded at the size, cleanliness and modern decoration of the whole place and the aircon in every room was very welcomed in the hot sunshine of outside. The first evening after settling in we headed to The Anglers Rest a very cosy bar and restaurant on site where the staff could not of been any more accommodating, we were introduced to Don and the staff who made us feel so very welcome, ordering the food from the menu they have everything covered, every cuisine from a fry up or steak pie to an Indian curry and obviously a good choice of Thai meals - we tried most things even the kids tried different to home flavours and not one meal was a disappointment! Everything freshly cooked no matter what time you turn up, beautifully presented and everything cooked to perfection making the experience of trying new things a lot easier, choosing what to eat and drink was probably the hardest part as there was so much choice :) Now to the reason we were there - the fishing 🎣 Oliver, Tom and the gillies are more than happy to answer every question you have when trying the catch those amazing beasts ! With everything needed provided and set up for you my partner managed to wrestle his dream fish to the net catching quite a few gigantic species and being so proud of his achievements 🎣😁 I could go on forever about this resort but I’ll sum it into one word - perfection 😍

It's hard to know where to start. Jurassic is simply amazing. We waited 3 years to get there (due to covid) and I have to say it was worth the wait. We've fished in Thailand before but this resort from top to bottom stands well above anywhere else we've been.

The accommodation is nothing less than what you'd expect from a 4 star hotel, full "living room" area with TV and sofa, large comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom and a shower with plenty of hot water. The rooms are cleaned daily to high standard and fresh towels are provided every day too.

The Anglers Rest bar/restaurant serves amazing food with everything from pizza, homemade pies and a top notch Australian rib eye steak to traditional Thai and Indian cuisine. You can eat at the restaurant or just text the staff and have it brought to your swim so you don't have to miss out on any fishing time. All the staff at the Anglers Rest are warm and friendly but a special shout out has to go to Sunisa and Bo, those 2 girls in particular are like little rays of sunshine and really can't do too much for you.

There's also a decent gym on site and a games room with consoles, pin ball machines and old school pacman etc.

Now onto the main event, the fishing! We had 6 days fishing booked on the main lake and my husband managed to catch his PB arapaima and siamese carp along with plenty of other fish in between. We also had a couple of days on the species lake and caught PB juliens carp and also caught a couple of new species in the form of a black minnow, blackhead asian carp and even a plec!

All in all we had the most amazing time at Jurassic and none of it would've been half as good an experience without the help and guidance received from Tom, Oliver and George. All 3 of them clearly have such a huge amount of knowledge and expertise and they really do want you to get the most from your visit and take the time and put in the effort to make sure that happens. Our experience genuinely wouldn't have been the same without them. I really can't sing their praises enough. Also, the standard of fish care at Jurassic is second to none. All fish are landed by lake staff who take the time to give the fish a good once over and oxygen and iodine are administered where necessary to make sure each fish is released in the best possible health.

We also met the new owner, Mark, during our visit and again he took time with each angler/ couple/ family to make sure everything was as expected and up to standard and even offered to get someone over to the resort so that I could have a mani/pedi or massage etc if I fancied a bit of a treat while the husband was fishing. Its little things like this and attention to detail by all staff and management at Jurassic that has made us both say that we 100% will be back. So hopefully we'll be seeing you all again soon.

Sam and Dave.

I am not an expert in sports fishing but definitely feel the thrill and excitement of it inside. I was on a holiday with my wife n kid for 10 days and thought to try out Jurassic Fishing Park. Spent 2 days of fishing at the lake and had the experience of a life time. They have very beautiful landscape with all the amenities to make anyone comfortable even for a relaxing trip. The restaurant and the food was excellent with top notch service at the venue as well as the fishing spots. As far as fishing was concerned, i got a very well briefing from Mr. Tom which got me to start the day. He spent a considerable amount of time to get me acquainted with lake. Mr. George also helped me out with techniques of line slack and quickly identified how tricky the 2 bites of Alligator Gar were {could not hook any}. He also suggested not to underestimate boilies. The following day i felt more confident and was following their instructions and spot selection by Gillies assigned to the swim. Luckily it all came together and managed to land a beautiful 180 pound carp. I was really scared seeing it for the first time. Got down with her in the water and then i could appreciate her real beauty. Again i got lucky with my wife kid praying constantly for the Arapaima. At the very last minutes i hooked her. Tom gave superb instruction to net the beauty. It was indeed a technical thing that comes from years of experience.

Before coming to the lake i informed Tom that i have packed Cigar to celebrate if i can catch 100 lb plus Carp n Arapaima. We celebrated with the cigar as promised. Honestly still i cannot believe the moment happened. Amazing pictures taken by Oliver. I can stare at those for hours and recollect every minute of the day. Thanks Jurassic Team for making my angling dreams come true.

Will be back soon with minimum 5 days of excitement planned along 3/4 of my fellow mates.

Wow - I had a good idea what to expect but once through the gate at the Fishing Park, it definitely had the WOW factor, beautiful grounds, and an amazing John Wilson MBE museum, very inspiring. Once checked in, the Anglers Rest was our first port of call, very friendly girls behind the bar, we sat with a drink, overlooking the lake and listened to the whistles which are blown when a fish is on the hook. Our Lakeside villa was like being at home, lovely bedroom, overhead shower, very comfortable lounge area. Rooms were cleaned very well by the girls. We had booked two separate stays, overall fishing for 7 days out of 10. The fishing was amazing, the view of the mountain absolutely gorgeous. The pool with waterfall was really cooling, particularly as the temperate was in the low 30's. The food was freshly prepared. The facilities around the lake exceptional, the girls came round on their little electric scooters delivering a beer, breakfast, snack, always with a smile. They really enjoy their job. They even arranged for me to visit a Thai hairdresser, I was taken there by their driver who waited for me while I was being transformed and drove me back. Ton, who I called "the man who was happy to do all kinds of jobs" again was always smiling and always helpful. The driver who picked us up in Bangkok was very nice and on our return trip he had to wait 3 hours for us, as our flight was delayed and then our luggage was lost. Now to the fishing - Ollie and Tom were very obliging, nothing was too much trouble. The fish were amazing and the gillies were right behind you when the whistle went off. We met some lovely other anglers and their wives, had many a laugh in the bar after dinner. I could go on but for me the help and attention from Jo Bowler (she looks after the UK bookings) was tremendous. I booked just before covid, she re-arranged our trip many times. A big thank you. Our trip was more than perfect. We would love to return one day, it was definitely a home from home place to be. Don't hesitate to book this venue.

Fantastic trip as usual the staff from top to bottom are so helpful and eager to please. The accommodation and food are best I've had at my many locations on fishing lakes here in Thailand. As for the fishing it was superb as usual , Tom , Oliver and all the gillies just love to see you catch fish so help in every way they can. Booking online was so easy with very good correspondence from Jo and I have to mention Piak too who took the time and effort to call me to see if I had arrived back at my destination .

Just back from 14 days at jurassic and I must say that both myself and my previously non fishing wife can not recommend this resort enough.
From our initial greeting we were made to feel a part of the jurassic family, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were airy, well appointed and comfortable. The food was amazing, the wide selection allowing for everyone tastes.
The fishing was unreal, huge fish caught on a daily basis and from our 9 days fishing we caught over a 100 fish... We being that my non fishing wife getting the bug, catching 100lb+ carp and a couple of rarities for the lake.
Having been back at home for less than a day I've already enquired availability for next year.
I can't recommend the resort highly enough.
Fishing wise both Tom and Oliver were available to offer expert advice and encouragement and the gillies always on hand to assist with the unhooking and handling of all fish caught.
It is heartening to see that fish welfare was at the forefront at all times and this could be seen by the health and condition of all fish caught.
A stunning location, with a wealth of different flora and fauna........we cannot wait to return.

Fishing this beautiful lake was without question the very best fishing experience ever for me. Booked three days and extended for another day as it was so wonderful. Caught huge fish every day and even caught the monster 180 pound "trophy" carp known as Scarface on day three. Cabin on the beautiful premises was a perfect convenience just a short walk to the restaurant and lakefront. Have already booked a return next week for more. The friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff were so helpful and, as I'm a true novice, they didn't leave my side until I caught the first huge fish and I felt I could continue without constant guidance. Met some wonderful people there including many first rate highly experienced anglers who seemed to enjoy the resort as much as I did.
