It is about a mile around the lake. This is the first time we took our canoe and kayak on a trip that was not local to us - we were visiting family in the area, so it was a good opportunity for us to Test out our strapping.
The launch site is a gravel drive and is easy to travel if you don't have a 14ft trailer to pull behind your vehicle. Because we didn't want to risk getting stuck, we carried the canoe and kayak up/down the hill. It wasn't terrible (not anything like the spillway at the Reservoir in Jackson - if you are familiar with that)
This site wasn't a let down for us because we have visited this park for many years, however, unless you plan to fish, or if you are not a novice, this site may bore you quickly.
