In 1767 when Ayutthaya was destroyed by the Burmese, the later King Taksin the Great lead his troops to build a Siamese military base at Chanthaburi. On the way to Chanthaburi, the troops had their night camp (Thai: khai ค่าย) in the area of modern day Ban Khai district.
Ban Khai was created as a district of Rayong Province in 1902.
The district is subdivided into 7 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 66 villages (muban). Ban Khai itself is a township (thesaban tambon) and covers parts of tambon Ban Khai and Nong Lalok. There are further 7 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
