Founded in 1996, Dan and Justin Hogan have seen many changes around Smith Lake. They built their first dock together as a father-son project after not being able to find exactly what they were looking for. Their second dock was for their neighbor and so it began.

Today, Free State Boat Docks is located on a large waterfront acreage on the banks of Lewis Smith Lake with a state of the art facility. Free State Boat Docks produces more docks than ALL other competitors combined and is the ONLY manufacturer of docks on Smith Lake using True Truss Construction, making our docks THE TOUGHEST ON THE WATER.

Working with Justin, Hawg and the entire Free State Team has been the BEST part of our Smith Lake experience ~ responsive, professional, and even coming out in person within an hour on Mother's Day when we thought we might have a slight issue post-installation. We have have stunned by the quality - Justin Hogan is THE Justin on Smith Lake!
