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 312 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 three 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.
