Oak Lake Membership Page

What’s new for 2022 Members: 


(1) Oak lake is now a members only lake. For the sole* use of members only. We now have 2 types of memberships available. Day membership & Night membership.


(2) Alders farm have invested heavily into Oak lake, including several new large carp, which have all been micro tagged and photographed for our records, to show growth and to keep notes on which ones have been caught and the anglers who have caught them. This will protect the future of Oak Lake for our members.


(3) As part of your new Oak Membership your will receive 10% off all purchases in-store including bait, tackle and it also includes our Air gun range (Gun sale and membership fees not included). Talk to us if you wish to purchase anything you can’t find in-store and we will order it for you if available.

(4) Oak Night ticket members only can pre book your swims (A single swim can only be booked a maximum of 2 times per month to make this fair for all members) This must be done on the first Monday of each month. All pre-booked swims must be paid for in advance. Your other bookings will be on a first come first served basis. We ask that you arrive before 10am. Leaving time is 08:30am the following morning. This makes it fair on all members.
