Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park is an archeological site in Kamphaeng PhetThailand. Along with Sukhothai Historical Parkand Si Satchanalai historical park, it is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Town of Sukhothai and Associated Historic Towns.

Major features in the Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park include archaeological remains of ancient sites such as Mueang Chakangrao to the east of the Ping River, Mueang Nakhon Chum to the west and Mueang Trai Trueng some 18 km from the town to the southwest. Chakangrao, the ancient Kamphaeng Phet town, had the same town planning concept as the old Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai, with separate zones for religious sites both within and outside of town limits.

Religious sites on the west bank of the Ping River at Nakhon Chum are built of bricks and of smaller size.
