About Us

Free State Boat Docks, Inc.

Since our founding in 1996, we have seen a lot of changes on Smith Lake. We’ve seen many competitors come and go, and we’ve sold a lot of boat docks. Over the years, we have continued to enhance our products always with the mission to build the best dock anywhere. Through experience and innovative design, we have become the undisputed leader in boat dock manufacturing and installations in the Smith Lake area. Our docks are well built, functional, stylish, and most importantly – tough! We can build any size dock that your project demands. From single-story one slips, to the most elaborate triple-bays with second-story party decks, we build them all. Your 100% satisfaction is our #1 priority.


A Custom Dock for Your Lake Lot

Every customer, much like every lot, is unique. Personal preferences, lot characteristics, permitting challenges, and budget constraints presents for us an opportunity to create a uniquely engineered product for our quality-conscious lake customers. You may already have an idea of what you want based upon the recommendation of Alabama Power. Then again, you may not – but that’s okay. Our seasoned consultant will guide you through all of your options based upon your unique criteria.

We pride ourselves on our quality and ingenuity and it becomes obvious in the products we produce. Join our family of hundreds of satisfied customers who buy from us again and again and refer their friends.
