Phu Kradung Resort: Excellent Place to Stay Before You Start

Phu Kradung has bungalows at the Park Headquarters; however, a much better deal is the private Phu Kradung Resort between the village and the Headquarters. It was a little hard to find but turned out to be great. Take the bus to Pha Nok Kao then Songthaew. The bus stops in a village on the main highway (Hwy-201) and you have to hire a pickup to get to Park Headquarters. Both Phu Kradung Village and the Phu Kradung Resort are on the way on Hwy-2019(?).

The rooms were new and built around a beautiful lake. A clean air conditioned room with a hot shower was 600 B (750 if you wanted to include breakfast). See also my travelogue on the Phu Kradung Resort.

The people were very helpful and friendly. They even let us pick rose apples from a tree at the lake. The gardens are beautiful. There are many things kids would like at the resort.

Phu Kradung Tents: What Most People Do

Most people rent Forest Service tents and sleeping bags. There seem to be many new bathrooms and showers being built for the tent campers.

Forest Service Bungalow: Not Much for the Money

A Forest Service bungalow on top of Phu Kradung costs 2000 B (~$50). It is supposed to sleep 10 in two bedrooms but really only would be comfortable for 2-3 people in each bedroom. There are no tables or chairs. Just a small shelf, a clothes drying rack, and mattresses on the floor. It did have a western toilet (flushed with a bucket) and a cold water shower. The water was pretty brown but still usable. The local staff used an attached shower and bathroom, so it was a little noisy at times.

The bungalow is reasonably clean and much better than sleeping in a tent in a hard rain.
