Unique Features

How the resort got its name: When the resort was built there were many "shingwako"– the Ojibwe word for "many big pine trees".

Each cabin comes with it’s own private fire ring. When you purchase firewood from us, we bring it right down to your fire ring. Spend nights roasting marshmallows under the stars and sharing campfire stories.

The pine trees that surround the resort provide a habitat for a variety of birds. Keep your eyes open. Our guest have spotted a Chipping Sparrow, Great Blue Heron, Mallard, Herring Gull, Cedar Waxwing, Purple Martin, Canada Goose, and many more. Bring your camera!

Things To Do

All guests have full access to paddleboats, kayaks, canoe, and life jackets. At the resort we have a motor boat and 3 pontoon boats available for rent. We know it’s important for our guests to explore the lake, so we offer a variety of options for the water.

At the resort we have two playgrounds, carpetbag, hook & ring, horseshoe pit, volleyball, basketball, volleyball, tether ball, and tons of green space for other yard games.

Winter in Brainerd includes 1,200+ miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails, downhill skiing, tubing, cross-country skiing, and more!
