Sams Lake consists of two lakes. The Top lake with 4 islands is usually used for club matches.
The bottom lake nearest to the car park is the public lake. We can use both lakes provided there are no Club Matches booked.

Follow A228 through Maidstone until it branches off to the right but take the Sutton Road (A274) to the left. Follow this road for 8.4 miles, until it turns a sharp left into Headcorn. At the end of Headcorn Village take Smarden Road to the left. Follow this for approx 1 mile where it turns sharp right, 200 yds further take Bedlam Lane on the Left, then 100 yds on the right is the entrance to Sams Lake. When you enter turn left and follow the gravel path to the carpark. The lakes are in front of you. There are 2 lakes, Bottom and top lake. There are 60 swims. You may fish either. The lakes are fully stocked with carp, tench, barbel, rudd, roach, chub, perch and bream. Set up and a member of staff will be round later to inspect your membership Card.
