Welcome to Twin Lakes, Wisconsin!
The Village of Twin Lakes, Wisconsin is located at the Illinois border east of US Highway 12 in western Kenosha County. Incorporated in 1937, Twin Lakes has enjoyed a long history as the prime home site for Native Americans as well as Settlers who arrived later. With nearly 1000 acres of water, the twin lakes of Mary and Elizabeth have drawn vacationers to numerous resorts as well as ice harvesters in the days of "ice box" refrigeration.
Today, while the ice harvesting has ended, many homes in Twin Lakes are used for recreation and the lakes remain a popular destination. Twin Lakes is home to about 6,041 permanent residents with about a third more spending only part of the year here.
