Phu Toei National Park (อุทยานแห่งชาติพุเตย) is a 319 km2 (123 sq mi) national park located in Dan Chang, Suphan Buri, Thailand. It has been a national park since September 30, 1998. On 26 May 1991, Lauda Air Flight 004 crashed over the park after one the Boeing 767's thrust reverser deployed in mid-air.
The park is visited by 300 persons monthly during the peak of 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."
One feature of the park is Khao Thevada (Angel Mountain), a 1,123-metre (3,684 ft) mountain that is the highest in the province. The mountain is on the borders of Kanchanaburi and Uthai Thani provinces.
