 Welcome to the Town of Winchester, Wisconsin -- "The Real Northwoods!"

Winchester is located in the northwest corner of Vilas County, bounded by Michigan's Upper Peninsula to the north, Iron County to the west, the town of Presque Isle to the east and the town of Manitowish Waters to the south. 

Winchester covers over 34,000 acres and is covered by lakes, with 34 named and 29 unnamed. Almost 80% of the town's area is wooded, and we have more than 6,000 acres of public land as part of the Northern-Highland American Legion State Forest. 

Winchester is a small community most of the year, with approximately 400-500 permanent residents (estimated in the year 2012). Like many towns in the Northwoods, we have a larger summer population, with approximately 3000 seasonal residents. Our area is perfect for summer activities like fishing, boating and hiking. Winter sports such as skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing are also popular.

Please see our Notices section for current news. See AIS Warnings.
