Although there are no provincial parks on Rebecca Lake there is a community association called the Bella Rebecca Community Association, which established the Mabel Hart Brook and Marion Hill Memorial Foundation to ensure the conservation of the Rebecca Lake/Bella Lake area. This conservation represents 448 acres of preserved land including 3100 feet of shoreline along the shore of Bella Lake. Here people can visit to enjoy the tranquility of the land and the sandy beach. There are trails to follow, with educational materials for one to read posted. Take Highway 60 to Limberlost to Fieldale road, to the access point at the dam. View the Lake Fact Sheet.
