Phu Toei National Park (อุทยานแห่งชาติพุเตย) is a 317 km2 (122 sq mi)[1] national park in Dan Chang District of Suphan Buri Province, Thailand. It has been a national park since 30 September 1998.

On 26 May 1991, Lauda Air Flight 004 crashed in the land that later became the park after one of the Boeing 767's thrust reversers deployed in flight.[2]

The park is visited by about 300 people monthly during the high season. The Daily Xpress of Singapore states that the park "goes down as one of Thailand's least known and least visited national parks. So much so, that most Suphan Buri folk don't even realise that their province has a national park."[3]

A dominant feature of the park is Khao Thevada ('Angel Mountain'), a 1,123-metre (3,684 ft) mountain[4] that is the highest in the province. The mountain is on the borders of Kanchanaburi and Uthai Thani Provinces.[3]
