Callaway County is a county located in Central Missouri in the United States. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the county's population was 44,332. Its county seat is Fulton. The county was organized November 25, 1820, and named for Captain James Callaway, grandson of Daniel Boone. Callaway was killed fighting Native Americans in 1815. Callaway County is also referred to as "The Kingdom of Callaway" after an incident in which residents confronted Union troops during the U.S. Civil War.

Callaway County is part of the Jefferson City Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Summit Lake Winery was founded in Holts Summit, linking the county to the Missouri Rhineland along the Missouri River. Vineyards and wineries were first established in the area by German immigrants in the 19th century. Since the 1960s, there has been a revival of winemaking throughout the state.
