The lake is the result of the Glenbawn Dam, built between 1954 and 1957 to regulate the flow of the Hunter River in order to meet stock, domestic and irrigation requirements.

Major extensions in the 1980s facilitated the development of the recreation area. The result is a popular spot for water skiing, fishing, swimming, wind surfing, sailing, canoeing and sailboarding. The website ( boasts that "Lake Glenbawn is also one of the best freshwater fishing spots in NSW. Cast a line and you can catch our famous 'big bass', golden perch (yellow belly) and catfish."

The lake's shoreline is predominantly open woodland with over 100 species of birds including galahs, eastern rosellas, pelicans and king parrots. The water attracts kangaroos and wallaroos in the early morning and at dusk.
