Welcome to Wilma Township

Welcome to Wilma Township!  Our community is located along the eastern edge of Pine County in East Central Minnesota.  We are nestled between the St. Croix State and the Nemadji State forests. We value our family, farms, rural residences, recreational cabins, creeks, woods and trails — and the rural lifestyle they provide us with an abundance of wildlife — fish, deer, turkeys, coyotes, fox, eagles, and pheasants.  Many visitors come to this area to enjoy the forests, camping, snowmobiling, four wheeling and more.  We are about six miles West of the famous Gandy Dancer Trail and 18 miles East of Sandstone.
