Coös County (c-eniconˈkoʊ.ɒs, with two syllables), usually spelled simply Coos County,

is a county in the U.S. state of New Hampshire, including the whole of the state's northern panhandle. The two-syllable pronunciation is sometimes made visible using diaeresis, notably in the Lancaster-based weekly newspaper, The Coös County Democrat and on some county-owned vehicles.

Coös occupies the largest area of any New Hampshire county, but has the smallest population: 33,055, as of 2010. It is the only New Hampshire county to have lost population between the 2000 and 2010 Censuses. The county seat is Lancaster. Major industries are forestry and tourism, with the once-dominant paper-making industry in sharp decline.

Coös County is part of the Berlin, NH - VT Micropolitan Statistical Area.
