Lake Sambell in Beechworth was the site of the Rocky Mountain Mining Company's open cut sluice mining operation from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s.

In the 1920s the area was turned into a recreational lake and reserve. Today, locals and visitors use the reserve for swimming, fishing, kayaking, walking and cycling. An adventure playground at Sandy Beach is available for kids.

The Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail has been extended so that it passes through the reserve. Extensive work has been undertaken to provide walking trails throughout the reserve which also offers electric barbecues, picnic tables and seating.
