Town of Wilson

Welcome to the Town of Wilson!

The Town of Wilson is a small township located in northern Lincoln County, Wisconsin.  It began in 1913 and currently has a population of approximately 321 people.  Our population consists mainly of families, retirees, snowbirds, and vacationers.  Over the years, it has developed into a friendly and welcoming community, with a relaxing atmosphere.

With the numerous County-owned lands, logging is our main industry, with recreation being secondary.  Wilson has abundant wildlife so hunting year-round can be expected.  We have 2 rivers that flow through the township; Somo River and The Big Somo River that are both navigable via canoe or kayak.  There are 3 lakes within the township; Somo Lake, Penny Lake and McCarthy Lake that provide a variety of water sports and activities.  We have two eating establishments and a trap club to provide additional opportunities.  There are ATV/UTV and snowmobile routes for those who wish to tour the area on the trails.  Most of our local roads are open for ATV/UTV and snowmobile use.

We encourage you to come and see the Town of Wilson for yourself.
