Mud Lake Docks and Lifts

Mud Lake is one of eight bodies of water known collectively as Portage Lakes.  The lakes located in this area between Akron and Canton were originally a man-made system of reservoirs and channels created in 1825 to supply water for transportation. Today Portage Lakes consists of eight lakes and reservoirs accounting for more than 2,000 acres of water used specifically for recreation during the dog days of summer.  Recreation activities include boating, fishing, and swimming just to name a few.  Mud Lake is a popular spot for putting in the jet-ski and blazing away in the sun.  A boat dock and boat lift are a must when living on Mud Lake!   

Mud Lake Docks

For over 20 years, Metal Craft Stationary Docks have been a popular choice for residents living around Mud Lake.  Stationary docks are perfect for areas where water levels fluctuate minimally during the season. Metal Craft Docks require little to no maintenance.  Dock sections are modular and can be reconfigured and added on season after season.  The all-aluminum construction allows for easy removal and re-installation year after year. Metal Craft decking is made from aluminum extrusions with a poly acrylic finish featuring our non-skid technology providing sure footing when entering or exiting water craft. The unique heat sink technology of our extrusion provides for an ambient walking surfaces versus other docks made of plastic or wood. Metal Craft Docks are built to last with the oldest know stationary system still in use after 55 years.  If you are interested in having a quality product for your lake front property, consider contacting our authorized dealer, Cornerstone Landscaping.
