Take Highway 30 North, toward St. Helens and Scappoose. Turn right onto the Sauvie Island Bridge.
At the end of the bridge ramp, continue straight, past the small store on your left. Follow the dike road about 1 1/2 miles to the fork and turn right onto Reeder Road.
Go about 1/4 mile on Reeder Road, then turn right, immediately before the school, onto NW Charlton Road. Follow this road as it curves left, then right. At the top of the hill you will see the brick gates of Charlton Kennels and Farm straight ahead of you.
Drive down the one lane driveway through the fields and past the small river to the main parking area. Follow the signs to the picnic area.
All dogs must be kept on leash unless running one of the games.
