Overview

Enduring holiday memories abound at Reflections Holiday Parks Lake Glenbawn, where the stunning scenery and lure of Glenbawn Dam combine to create a simple, yet standout spot just perfect for your next holiday escape. Just 15 minutes out of Scone, in picturesque Upper Hunter country, the spacious Lake Glenbawn Holiday Park is an oasis of green rolling hills, pristine water, plenty of wildlife and a well-deserved reputation for some of the best freshwater fishing in NSW. Try your luck at catching a bass or two. Get out on the lake for some water-skiing or jet-skiing action. Enjoy hiking the mountainous terrain, keeping an eye out for the birds and animals as you go, or simply relax and admire the water views from your spot on the hillside.

Visited with family and realised that this place is mainly for boating and camping. I do not suggest this place for young kids if you are not going in groups or camping.

It was a hot day when I went, but there are some good shelters with good amenities and a shower should you need to cool off. The local wallabies are cute to watch.

The park was overcrowded at our arrival on Friday morning. All the sites near the water were taken. My husband managed to find a spot with a fantastic view of the Lake. The miner matters like the queues for showers and toilets that smelt badly...More

Can't even drive in for a look Website terrible. Nothing about fees or availability of season passes for locals. Staff don't care. Never answer the phone. Can't tell u if it is any good as they won't allow a 15 min viewing.

The staff here are extremely rude and try to bend the rules they have put inplace to get more money out of your pocket. I will never be returning to this park and will be telling everyone i know to do the same.

Nothing close to the lake. There are unpowered sites but, still within the state park.
