I did not stay at the lodge but visited the lake. A 3 kilometre walk each way on level ground sounds easy. When we visited the mud was nine inches deep across most of the path, and the temperature was 91F. You get to wear borrowed wellingtons - take some time to find a good fit. You will definitely need a stick.
If you walk along the very edge of the path to avoid the worst of the mud, be cautious about holding on to any trees that you pass. Many of the tree trunks have sharp spines, and some of those that do not have fire ants. Their bite really does hurt, though your guide will likely have some cream to abate the pain.
I took two litres of water in a Camelback and it was only just enough. Others on the walk took less water and felt quite ill as a result.
When you do get there it is a beautiful tranquil lake on which you can paddle quietly. No motors of any kind in earshot. What you see is a matter of luck but we saw giant otters, a caiman, and many exotic and beautiful birds, some quite close up. We were exceptionally lucky to see a giant anteater within ten yards of the path - but don't count on this. Nobody had ever seen one there before.
The lodge is supplied twice daily by four determined young men pushing a handcart up the path. There are not many harder jobs to be had.
If you are staying at the lodge doubtless there are the normal facilities. If you are not, then remember you will have a total of 6km of walking through mud in hot weather, and the only food and drink is what you take with you. I found this tougher than walking at high altitude.
