Wautoma is a town of around 2000 people. Its small, but close-knit and I did enjoy moving here. However, this just isn't the city for me. I love the fact that everyone knows each other and all the shops are family owned but, this place just isn't for me. Wautoma as a town isn't bad, its small and homey and definitely gorgeous for someone just wanting to settle down.

Wautoma is a small, vacation town in Central Wisconsin. With many small lakes, including Silver Lake, a fishing/boating hotspot, Wautoma makes for a great summer getaway. From growing up in this small town for almost all my life, I can personally say that it is a tight knit community with plenty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed all year round.
I love my little town of Wautoma WI. There are a little over 2200 full time, year - round residents, but in the summer, there are many more people visiting from other cities and states. It's a great place to work and live. Quiet, clear air, homey feel.
