A father-Son Project

for two Decades

In 1996

the Hogan family had just purchased their first lake home on Lewis Smith Lake.  Dan and son; Justin set out to find a dock. After, not being able to find what they had in mind and astonished at the quality for the price, a father-son project of building a boat dock was born. Shortly after they completed their project, a neighbor asked them to build one for him & so it began

Nearly 30 years later, the duo builds more docks than all other builders combined, with a team of course now. Free State Boat Docks consistently gives back to the Lewis Smith Lake and surrounding communities through many charities and sponsorships.  In addition, Free State Boat Docks consistently receives accolades for “Readers Choice” in local publications naming  them “The Best Dock Builder” on Smith Lake.
