About Us

Dear Friends and Vacationers,
Here are some of the exciting things there is to do and experience at Winjum's Shady Acres of Faribault:

Fishing: Either from one of our 8 docks or bring your boat and lake hop. You can also rent well maintained pontoons.
Our lake has some BIG Northern, Sun Fish, Crappies, Perch, Bass, Cat Fish and more..

Our lodge has charitable gambling, pizzas, small groceries, pop, beer, wine, we can "set you up" if you bring in your favorite liquor, on-site laundry, state of art fish cleaning room, complimentary table games and a couple arcade games.

Keep your kids or grandkids entertained with our basketball court, shuffle board court, horseshoes, sandy swimming area (located very close to all our cabins), and our giant playground set! We also have lots of green area to setup your favorite lawn games.

We can furnish you with firewood (due to state warnings on Emerald-Ash bore beetles, our guests are NOT allowed to bring firewood to our campground), propane, gas, ice and more. If you don¹t have something you need, it¹s never a far drive to get it!
It's never too far from Shady Acres to other destinations-- Mall of America, Valley Fair Amusement Park, Cabellas, State bike trails, Zoos, Vikes or Twins Stadiums. Faribault also can boast of several attractions. Go to to see what our city offers.

Finally after long day of fun, pull-up your lawn chair, relax right on the west shore of our lake. Have a fire and roast some marshmallows before retiring happily for the evening. -The Winjums
