Portage Lakes Docks and Lifts

Portage Lakes is a man-made system of reservoirs and channels created in 1825 to supply water for transportation.  Located between Akron and Canton, Ohio, Portage Lakes consists of eight lakes and reservoirs accounting for more than 2,000 acres of water.  Recreation activities include boating, fishing, and swimming just to name a few.  Portage Lakes is a popular fishing spot for Large mouth Bass and Crappie.  Start your spring recreation early with the Polar Bear Plunge at Portage Lakes in early February!   

Portage Lakes Docks

Metal Craft Stationary Docks are a popular choice for residents living around Portage Lakes.  Stationary docks are perfect for areas where water levels fluctuate minimally during the season and require little to no maintenance during the boating season.  Dock sections are modular and can be reconfigured and added on season after season.  The all-aluminum construction allow for easy removal and re-installation year after year. Metal Craft decking is made from aluminum extrusions with a poly enamel finish featuring our non-skid technology providing sure footing when entering or exiting water craft. Metal Craft Docks require little maintenance and will last decades into the future.  If you are interested in having a quality product for your lake front property, please contact us here at Metal Craft.
