The lake has a glacial origin, its age is estimated at 10 000 years. For millennia, significant deposits of bottom mud were accumulated in the lake, which was much larger than the present ones, which led to a reduction in its area and the formation of the Dubninsky and Ol'khovsko-Bat'kovskii boggy massifs, as well as the meadows later overgrown with forest.
The lake was and is a resting place for Muscovites. There is evidence that Vladimir Ilich Lenin came to rest near Zabolotoye Lake . From the middle of the 20th century until the 1980s, water quality control measures were carried out and various reclamation projects wer implemented.
