Billings County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Dakota. As of 2010, the population was 783. Its county seat and only incorporated place is Medora.

The Territorial legislature authorized Billings County in 1879, naming it for Northern Pacific Railway president Frederick H. Billings. It was organized seven years later, on May 4, 1886, at a meeting in Medora. The county's area was later reduced by erecting new counties: Golden Valley County in 1912 and Slope County in 1915.

Billings County is part of the Dickinson Micropolitan Statistical Area.
