Wenas Lake in Washington

Trip Overview

This is a small lake located approx. 18 miles NW of Yakima and I paddled around it in the early morning to escape the winds that can develop later in the day. It has a small creek flowing in from the north that can be explored for a couple hundred yards. Not an idyllic site as it is a desert area but quiet and unused except by fishermen. Not a destination site for a long drive but if someone is in the area and has time to spare.


Boat launch, outdoor toilets.


Take the North Wenas road out of Selah and stay on it until you arrive at the lake.
