Unique Features

The Reunion Lodges at the Shing Wako Resort are a unique opportunity to bring together large groups under one roof. Families and friends can stay together without feeling overcrowded. The spacious 1,680 square foot units allow for plenty of space for everyone. Whether you’re barbequing on the outdoor deck or roasting marshmallows on your private fire pit, the reunion lodge brings people together and is the perfect place for any group gathering!

The Shing Wako Resort is also available to rent at any time of the year. Being right on Lake Edward, our resort is the perfect place for a summer vacation. Boating, fishing, kayaking and just relaxing on the beach are some of the best ways to spend summer. But you can visit the Shing Wako in the winter too!

Things To Do

Well, the Brainerd Lakes area has over 1,200 miles of well-groomed trails for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. You can also take a trip to Ski Gull ski hill near Gull Lake with the whole family while staying at The Shing Wako. Winter bookings must be done in advance with at least a three night minimum stay.

The Shing Wako Resort is very centrally located in Brainerd, Minnesota, making it easy to find things to do on and off the resort. Lake Edward is a great source of fun summer activities. We have boat and dock rentals so you can spend time on 2,000 acre lake fishing, water skiing or just relaxing. Paddleboards, kayaks, canoes and lifejackets are also free to use with your cabin rental. Away from the beach, the resort has plenty of space for sports, biking, exploring and experiencing nature. The pine trees and lake make for a great natural habitat to watch birds or catch frogs.
