Bonneville County is a county located in the U.S. state of Idaho. As of the 2010 census, the county had a population of 104,234. Its county seat and largest city is Idaho Falls. As the most populous county in eastern Idaho, Bonneville County currently ranks fourth in the state, behind Ada, Canyon and Kootenai.

Bonneville County was established in 1911, named after Benjamin Bonneville (1796–1878), a French-born officer in the U.S. Army, fur trapper, and explorer in the American West. Bonneville is noted for his expeditions to the Oregon Country and the Great Basin in the 1830s.

The county was partitioned from Bingham County, which was part of Oneida County until 1885. Bonneville County is part of the Idaho Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area.
