How old is son? And how fit are you both? There's at least 20" of snow you have to hike through from the road to the lake. And I believe the walk is right at around 1.5 to 2 miles. If you have a snow mobile, maybe some of the other guys can chip in some advice.
The old adage about walking uphill both ways, applies here.
You might be better off taking him to Dowdy or West Lake to get him into ice fishing. Chambers & Joe Wright can be a physical test of strength, deep snow drifts & 10,000 feet of elevation will definitely give you your cardio workout for the day.

I will say if you find a way to safely get out on Chambers. The view and the fishing can be well worth the trip. But I agree that 4 years old and having to walk may be a bit of a stretch, but there will be a time.
