The Lake Bellfield Swimming and Picnic Area is a scenic spot on the lake shore, where a gently sloping beach is accompanied by grassy lawns and a spacious picnic area.

This is a fantastic spot to bring a packed picnic or barbecue lunch, embark on a kayaking adventure, or cool off in the water during summer.

Swimming is only permitted at Lake Bellfield within the designated swimming area at this picnic ground, which is indicated by signs.
