The Wenas Audubon Campground is well outside the area that burned last year, so there should be no problem using the area. The downside is that, coming from either Ellensburg or Yakima, you would have to drive through miles of burned forest to get to it. I presume that the Umtanum and North Wenas Roads are quite passable, but confirmation from anyone who's been there recently would be helpful!
You can see the exact extent of the Evans Canyon fire by visiting the "Inciweb" website (a nationwide wildfire information site) at this address: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov , and zooming in on Eastern Washington on the nationwide map that pops up.

Looking for any current information on how the Wenas Audubon Campground fared during the Evans Canyon Fire last year. And info on the state of the access road(s) from Ellensburg to the campground. Planning a May trip to the area if it is open.
