With 35 acres of wooded land and over 800 feet of crystal-clear beachfront, activities abound at Shady Shore Resort. Row a tried and true Larsoncraft rowboat by morning. Throw horseshoes by dusk. Top off the evening with a roaring bonfire. Whatever activities you and your family choose, days are sure to pass quickly at Shady Shore Resort.

A Moose Lake Award Winning Muskie

Shady Shore lies in close proximity to over 1,200 superb fishing holes. Guests, therefore, often experience the goodness of a fresh, flaky Walleye filet, the surface-breaking excitement of a Small-Mouth Bass, or the deep-water dives of a powerful Northern Pike. For the most skilled of anglers the elusive Muskellunge makes for a true trophy challenge. Shady Shore Resort’s fish cleaning area is open 24-hours a day and is available to all guests. Additionally, upon request and when in good working order, boat motors for the free rowboats may be available for rent.

Shady Shore's Hiking Trails

Typical Shady Shore Resort activities may include: boating, fishing, sandcastle building, enjoying nature hikes, paddleboating, canoeing, playing volleyball, throwing horseshoes, water skiing, playing board games, barbequing, star gazing, and making smores at night-time bonfires. Please note: Shady Shore does not supply the gear for watersports. Poles for water volleyball are provided and some simple yard games are available near the main dock. Guests are urged to bring their own gear for outdoor fun.


Guests who wish to fish famous Moose Lake must acquire a Minnesota fishing license and must adhere to DNR fishing regulations. Guests are welcome to bring private boats to the resort with an understanding that a one-time $30 docking fee will apply.
