From Yakima - Take Exit #109 (signed Canyon Road, SR 821), and drive north on Canyon Rd. towards town. In about a half-mile, turn left (west), onto Umptanum Road, also called Damman Rd.. This road goes under I-90, crosses the Yakima River, passes some agricultural fields before heading up Shushuskin Canyon. At the top of the canyon, the pavement ends, and Umptanum Rd. becomes a (usually well maintained) gravel road. The name changes to Wenas Rd. at the county line, and the road continues over Manastash and Umptanum Ridges, and past part of the L. T. Murray Wildlife Recreation Area (WA Dept. of Game), about 15 miles from Ellensburg. Very soon after you come to blacktop road surface stop, look for Audubon signs, turn right up the gravel road to the NW (Audubon Road). In 2.8 miles, watch for a road to the left that crosses a bridge over Wenas Creek. After crossing the bridge, bear to the right and proceed to the first meadow.

Located north of the more popular, but now restricted, BBQ Flats area, the Audubon camp, also known as Cascade Camp, has long been a haven for bird watchers and ORV enthusiasts. That being said the Wenas wildlife area, spanning 105,460-acres and two counties, can easily accommodate multiple user groups.
