Unique Features

The Reunion Lodges are a very unique aspect of the Shing Wako Resort. These large cabins allow for big groups to stay together under one roof. The spacious units are 1,680 square feet, allowing plenty of room for everyone. Both units in the lodge include two decks, picnic tables, chairs and a large gas grill. Imagine barbequing with the whole family on a warm summer night! The reunion lodges continue to bring people together to have fun in northern Minnesota at any time of year.

Lake Edward is also a very special part of the Shing Wako Resort. The lake is 100-150 yards from all of the cabins and lodges, giving easy access to the water and a beautiful view. The lake is 2,000 acres and plenty of space for all sorts of water activities including swimming, kayaking, water skiing, and more.

Things To Do

The shore is 100% sand with a gradual depth increase, perfect for swimming.

At the Shing Wako Resort, we want you to have the best experience possible and provide many fun activities for you and the whole family. Boat rentals are available or you can bring your own! Lake Edward is stocked with walleye annually and also home to the northern pike, bass, sunfish and crappies making it a great fishing spot. Kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and lifejackets are all free to use with your cabin rental. The resort also has plenty of green space for sports and basketball, volleyball and tetherball courts. If you are visiting in the winter, Mount Ski Gull is an affordable ski hill perfect for the whole family!

The Brainerd Lakes Area also has over 1,200 miles of well-groomed trails for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. No matter the season, the Shing Wako Resort is packed with fun things to do for everyone.
