Gyeongpo Lake is 4.35 kms. in circumference. Here’s the lake looking south from the walking trail along the west shore:

Jung-do Park, Chuncheon

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Jung-do is an island in the lake on the west side of Chuncheon. There are a couple of restaurants, and there’s cabins for rent. The south end is wooded, farther north there’s a maintained lawn.

Access to the island is by ferry. They run every half hour in the warmer season.
