Boat Launch for Lake Henderson???

Hey guys, looking to take the kids fishing possibly tomorrow and wanted to put in and fish Lake Henderson. What is the closest boat launch near I10, coming from Baton Rouge, how do you get to it etc. Also, any tips on where to go once launched. Want to try and put the kids on some Sacs, jigging. Preciate the info.
I can't help you with the "where to fish" question as I haven't fished out there in years. But the nearest and best place to launch would be under the interstate at the Butte LaRose exit. Just exit the interstate, take a right(you'll be heading south), and take another right just before the visitor's center. They have a sign for the boat launch right there. Go past the visitor's center (you'll be going west) and you'll run into the launch area.
You may want to take the kids in the visitor's center. They have a really nice presentation about the Atchafalaya Spillwy that's geared towards kids.
