Menominee County is a county in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. In 2000, the population was 4,562. Its county seat is Keshena.

The county was created on July 3, 1959, in anticipation of the termination of the Menominee Indian Reservation in 1961. The reservation status was restored in 1973, and is now co-extensive with the county. Most of the land within the county boundary is under Federal Trust for the exclusive use by enrolled Menominee Indians. Scattered parcels that were purchased during Termination, as well as many lots around the Legend Lake area in the southeastern part of the county, are the only parts of the county that are privately-owned by non-Indians.

Most of Menominee County's population consists of Menominees.
