The district dates back to khwaeng Mae Om, which was established in 1902. In 1923 the district was renamed San Kamphaeng.
San Kamphaeng is known for its many silk factories. Along the road from Chiang Mai to San Kamphaeng are many handicraft shops selling traditional Thai items to tourists, like the umbrellas of Bo Sang.
The district is divided into 10 sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 100 villages (muban). There are two townships (thesaban tambon). San Kamphaeng covers parts of tambons San Kamphaeng and Chae Chang, and the entire tambon Sai Mun. Ton Pao covers the entire tambon of Ton Pao. There are a further eight tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
