Shing Wako offers boat and dock rentals so you can use a boat here or bring your own! Our 24’ Pontoon Boats and and 18’ Deluxe Fishing Boats are perfect for fishing trips on Lake Edward. Both boats have depth detectors and fish finders to catch all the walleye, pike and bass Lake Edward has to offer.

Things To Do

The Shing Wako Resort offers many fun summer activities including fishing, boating and fun on land. Due to the large amount of Pine Trees, many species of birds have made the Shing Wako Resort their home. Bird watching is a great opportunity to view species such as the American White Pelican, Bald Eagle, Pileated Wood Pecker, and Baltimore Oreole. The Pine River Riding Stable is also a great way to get a dose of nature while riding a horse through a guided trail. The stables also have a free petting zoo with all sorts of critters, perfect for kids!

If you are visiting Shing Wako Resort in the winter, the Brainerd Lakes Area has over 1,200 miles of snowmobile trails. Snowmobiling is a great winter activity that allows you to discover more of the beautiful scenery of the Brainerd Lakes Area. Downhill and cross-country skiing is also a big attraction for the whole family. Ski Gull near Gull lake is a great and affordable hill that makes for a fun and exciting winter day.
