The Shing Wako Lodge was built in 1937 and has an interesting and unique history behind it. The name Shing Wako comes from the indigenous word for white pines. In the 1930's there were many white pines in our area and the locals referred to them as Shing Wak's. Today, we can still see many of the white pine trees as they continue to remind us of the origins of the resort.
