The Area

Lake Shamineau

Nestled in the heart of Minnesota, come discover the scenery and crystal clear waters of Lake Shamineau! This spring-fed lake is known for its water quality and spectacular clarity.

The 1,626 acre lake is approximately 3 miles in length and 1 mile wide. The lake has a maximum depth of 52 feet, an average depth of 17 feet and over 11 miles of shoreline.

Great fishing, recreation and swimming combine to make Lake Shamineau the perfect place to vacation.  Relaxing on our beautiful beach area and swimming in the refreshing and clear spring-fed waters provides the ultimate getaway to unwind with friends and family!


Lake Shamineau is abundant with walleye, northern pike, largemouth bass, crappie and other types of panfish.

Our lodge sells bait (minnows, leeches, night crawlers and worms) along with tackle items. We have two pontoons for rent for getting out on the lake to fish.

For kids who want to fish right off the dock, there are plenty of panfish and bass just a cast away!

If you’re looking for a fishing guide service during your stay, one we recommend is Hirschey’s Guide Service.  Call Austin at 218-371-0258 to schedule your day of great fishing!
