We have a very large floating dock system that holds fish all summer long, especially from August through September. Catching fish off the dock has been a long tradition since the days of Empty Bar Resort and Campbells Lodge. Now SandHaven continues this tradition with crappies, sunfish, perch, bass, northern and even the occasional walleye (more common in June) caught right off our dock!

Our floating dock system offers safety and convenience for you and your boat. Since it is a plastic floating system, your boat is always at the correct level to the dock. Slips are assigned and electricity is provided to each one. The plastic is also nice for barefoot children because there are no wood slivers or uneven boards to stub toes on.
