Collingsworth County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 3,057. Its seat is Wellington.

Collingsworth County is named for James Collinsworth, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and first chief justice of the Republic of Texas (a recording error in the bill accounts for the error in spelling, which was never corrected). Collingsworth County is one of 30 prohibition, or entirely dry, counties in the state of Texas. It is north of Childress County, which is named for George Campbell Childress, another founder of the Republic of Texas.

Republican Drew Springer, Jr., a businessman from Muenster in Cooke County, has since January 2013 represented Collingsworth County in the Texas House of Representatives.
