Shing Wako Resort  

 

Brainerd Resort on Lake Edward
Making Vacation Memories
for Almost 80 Years!

We specialize in Quality, Service, Family Fun and relaxing around your own campfire!
If you're looking for a fun and relaxing family resort - get away to Shing Wako! We are located in north central Minnesota about eleven miles from Brainerd, Nisswa or Crosslake. Rejuvenate on our sandy swimming beach, swim in the clear water and play on our eleven park-like acres. There is something for everyone! The convenience of our amenities will make you feel right at home!
Seven Things That Make Our Resort a Great Northwoods Lake Experience:
 
  • Quality Accommodations & Cleanliness - We give ourselves plenty of time to clean and make any necessary repairs between guests due largely to our weekly check-in after 9am on Saturday and check out the following Friday before 11am.
  • The Perfect Size Lake - Lake Edward is over 2000 acres with a 100% sand shore - large enough for water sports, but more peaceful than a chain of lakes. Right at our resort we have boats available to rent. Responsible jet skiing is allowed.
  • Flexible Reservations in the Summer - Book your "week" checking in after 9 am on Saturday and checking out the following Friday before 11 am, or book a "mini vacation" - Fri-Mon for 3 nights or Mon-Fri for 4 nights. See our cabins page for more details.
  • Gradual Sandy Beach & Clear Water - Our beach area has a very gradual sand slope with clear water; ideal for swimming, building sand castles or just relaxing in the sun.
  • Quiet - We are sensitive to the relaxation of others by observing a quieter time after 10 pm.
  • Your Own Fire Ring - Each cabin has it's own fire ring nearby for your enjoyment.
  • Centrally Located in the Brainerd Lakes Area - We are on the "quiet" side of Brainerd, well off of Hwy 371. Click here for an extensive list of Things To Do from our resort.

Shing Wako History
The name, Shing Wako, was derived from the Ojibwe word, zhingwaakoog, 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.

 

As owners of Shing Wako Resort we believe in being Good Resource Managers.
