Unique Features

The Shing Wako Resort has many unique qualities, one being the proximity to Lake Edward. The lake is 2,000 acres, plenty of space for boating, jet skiing, water skiing and more! Lake Edward also has 100% sand shores with an average depth of 15 feet. These sandy, shallow waters make it the perfect swimming location for all ages. The lake is also stocked with walleye and home to northern pike, bass, sunfish and crappies, making Lake Edward a great fishing area. Boat rentals are available or you can bring your own!

Northern Minnesota is a very naturally beautiful environment and is part of what makes the Shing Wako Resort so unique. We do our best to preserve the nature that surrounds us by being conscious resource managers. 15o feet of our 450 foot shoreline will remain undeveloped.

Things To Do

The Shing Wako Resort offers many fun summer activities on and off Lake Edward. Paddleboards, kayaks, canoes and lifejackets are free to use with your cabin rental. Lake Edward is also a great fishing location with tons of walleye, northern pike, bass, sunfish and crappies. The resort has several acres of green space for sports and volleyball, basketball and tetherball courts. The paved paths throughout the property are great for biking, scooting or skating. Kids learn to ride their bikes here every year! There are also 3-4 mile walking trails around the resort that are perfect for exploring!

The town of Brainerd also has many fun activities to offer. Local farmers markets and shops surround the resort and make for great day trips. The Pine River Riding Stable has guided trails on horseback and a free petting zoo for the kids! There are also several state parks including the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, Crow Wing State Park and Mille Lacs Kathio State Park.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. Thank you so very much for being part of our family life by sharing your wonderful restful place. We cherish every moment of our time spent at Shing Wako. See you in August
Marty and Sue, Thanks again for the wonderful family vacation you provided for us. The cabin with awesome kitchen, bathrooms & beds, the grounds, beach, pontoon, and all the fun things to do and still have enough space to feel private are AMAZING, the fact that you keep up with it all is equally amazing. The whole place is kept so clean and maintained right down to the wonderful firewood you brought to us nightly. Not many, if any resorts are keeping up to these standards anymore.
How children friendly this resort is – perfect for family reunions, the clean cabins & water, privacy
Fishing! Reunion Lodge layout superb, awesome!
