Unique Features

The Shing Wako Resort has a very unique history. Built in 1937, it was a very popular six-cabin resort known for its dancing and tavern. The name “Shing Wako” comes from the Ojibwe word for White Pines. In the 1930’s there were many white pines in our area that the local’s referred to as “Shing Waks”. The beautiful white pines can still be seen today and remind us of the origins of the resort.

Our cabins are also available to rent at any time of the year. The Brainerd Lakes Area has great outdoor activities year-round. During the winter, there are over 1,200 miles of well- groomed snowmobile trails and several locations for downhill or cross-country skiing. Shing Wako is a unique place to visit in the summer and the winter for fun in the sun and snow.

Things To Do

The Shing Wako Resort offers boat and dock rentals on Lake Edward. The 2,000-acre lake is perfect for fishing, jet skiing, tubing and water skiing. Paddleboards, kayaks and canoes are also available for free with your cabin rental. The shallow, sandy waters of Lake Edward are perfect for swimming or relaxing on the shoreline.

Away from the beach, the resort is filled with green space to play and relax. There are 3-4 mile trails surrounding the resort for exploration and walks. There are also volleyball, basketball and tetherball courts for your enjoyment. The lake and pine trees provide a great habitat for a variety of different birds, making for great bird watching. Each cabin also has a private fire pit for summer evenings. Wood is available for purchase and we will deliver it directly to your cabin!
