Try the Elephant Nature Park, it has a great reputation. The elephants there are rescued, no trekking or shows, it's all about caring for the elephants.

I had a brief visit to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, located about a 1 1/2 hour drive south of Chiang Mai. There are no rides, but you get to play, feed and bathe the elephants. The elephant sanctuary has photographers that will photograph your entire experience for free too.

Take a look at their half-day tour itinerary: https://www.elephantjunglesanctuary.com/half-day-visit-morning

The tour includes hotel pick up and drop off in Chiang Mai, tour guide at the sanctuary, snacks, bottled water and food for feeding the elephants.

We did a lot of research on elephant sanctuaries before we left for Thailand because we wanted to find a place that was ethical and did not ride or hit the elephants. We decided on Elephants At Home and it was the perfect choice. There were three elephants, including a mom and her 6-year-old son, that have been living with the same family since they were born. They live 2 1/2 hours away from Chiang Mai in the mountains, and the drive up there can be a bit bumpy, but it all worth it.

The elephants are free to roam the jungle, and sometimes they even run away while foraging for food and have to be found by their tracks. It was wonderful to see the elephants living in their natural environment and not a pen where they could forage, eat mud, and engage in their natural behaviors. There was even a photographer that followed us the whole day and gave us all the pictures at the end of the day! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience with these intelligent and majestic animals.
