“Great Park with Some Fantastic Fossil Hikes”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The site of the first dinosaur fossil discovery in Thailand, with lots of great wilderness to hike and explore. Butterflies everywhere, and hikes through the well-maintained nature trails around the park will take you past the discovery sites of 5 different species of dinosaurs, including the locally famous Phuwiangosaurus sirindhornae- a 20 meter long plant-eater that was the first of its genus ever discovered. Friendly park staff will help you out with renting camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads and pillows all available for cheap), and tell you about the attractions. During the rainy season months (August-November), be sure to check out the Tat Far waterfall near the back gate entrance to the park. Bring in your own food, as the park restaurant is frequently closed.

“Great National Park”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We traveled by bike, from a small town 5 km away from the National Park and hiked around the Archaeological dinosaur digs. This was a very nice National Park and we enjoyed the trails and educational waysides. If your in Phu Wiang, you must visit this National Park, along with the Phu Wiang Dinosaur museum!
