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.
Only 15 minutes out of Scone, in the 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, keep 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.
Take your pick from one of the park’s cosy cabins, some with million-dollar views over Lake Glenbawn. Or BYO caravan, RV or tent and enjoy the fun of a true-blue camping experience. Make yourself at home near the park’s facilities or take advantage of the parks’ spaciousness and find yourself a private piece of paradise.
Dog-friendly on both powered and unpowered sites, the whole family can live it up at Lake Glenbawn. Spend the day on the dam, explore the captivating landscape (including one of the largest rock-fill embankment walls in Australia) or take advantage of the park’s location and explore the delights of nearby Scone.
And when the day is done, there’s nothing like an evening campfire to remind you the simple things in life are often the best.

Located close to the dam, the main undercover BBQ area is a great place to gather with family and friends and to meet other guests. You can sit and enjoy the simple things in life with Glenbawn Dam just a stone’s throw away. The kids can play in the playground, all within cooee. There are plenty of picnic tables to sit around and watch the sun set over the dam in the evening. Additional smaller BBQ areas are also conveniently located near the cabins on the eastern foreshore as well as in the western precinct, near the powered sites/villas.
Although Lake Glenbawn has conveniently located communal BBQ areas dotted around the park and some of the cabins also have their own private BBQ on the balcony, we do allow you to bring your own BBQ on both powered and unpowered camp sites. Contained campfires are allowed on unpowered camp sites also, perfect for those cooler nights to sit around with family and friends and relax after an adventure filled day (rules apply – guests must comply with fire restrictions imposed by the Park Manager/Fire Authority, campfires must be contained in a fire pit and always attended, by law the collection of firewood from the park is not permitted – firewood can be purchased from the kiosk or outside the park, fires must be completely extinguished after use).
Switch off, wind down, soak in the scenery and get back to basics. Lake Glenbawn allows you to get away from it all and reconnect with the natural environment. Digitally detox and just go fishing, boating, skiing, paddling or swimming (the dog is welcome to take a dip in the dam also). The western precinct has a swimming pool, (although this is a little ways away from the dam). There are multiple boat ramps to launch your watercraft. For the fishing buffs, there are fish cleaning tables at your disposal.
There are several amenities’ blocks (including an accessible bathroom), coin laundry, undercover BBQ areas with plenty of seating and the kiosk is available for a snack or to pick up any last minute necessities you may have forgotten. The kids have a large playground to run free with plenty of grass around to kick a ball or run off some energy (if they have any left).
Lake Glenbawn has Regular ULP and swap n go gas bottles (no refill) available for purchase during office hours (9am to 5pm).
You are spoilt for choice at Lake Glenbawn. There are multiple areas to camp unpowered and we do not allocate you a specific site. You are free pick your own piece of nature and set up where you feel comfortable. If you still require some creature comforts during your stay, you may run a generator during the day (8am to 10pm only). Water taps are scattered throughout the unpowered areas and at the amenities blocks.
If you have a stay booked at Lake Glenbawn, we provide you an access code to enter the park. Each booking includes an access code for one vehicle (additional vehicles require their own access code at a small fee).
For day visitors, a Day pass can be purchased from the office/kiosk during office hours (9am to 5pm). You can enter the park using the generic code on the boom gate, but you will not be able to exit without stopping by the office first to get a day pass. For regular day trippers, an annual pass (valid for 12 months) may be more convenient.
All access codes expire at 10pm.
Please be aware, that at times of low dam levels, some boat ramps may harder to access at the water’s edge.
