There is accomodation inside the park which is simple but comfortable. Ideally situated if you are walking would be the cabins next to the ranger hq as you can walk across the road to the restaurant area and eat. Otherwise walking around at night is forbidden due to the risk of bumping into, primarily Elephant. It is a cheap and cheerful way of staying in the park, avoiding the entrance fees which you have to pay daily if you pass through the gate and is very close to some of the best trail areas IMO. I've stayed there a few times in recent years and seen most of the specialities, Coral-billed GC, Eared and Blue Pitta, the Broadbills and even Bay Owl on trail 6 just opposite. And yes you can camp in the same area, I think tents and bags are available to hire from the HQ. Try to avoid the weekends if you can.
