Harding County is a county located in the U.S. state of South Dakota. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,255. Its county seat is Buffalo. The county was established in 1881 and named in honor of J.A. Harding, who had been Speaker of the House of the Dakota Territory. It was merged for a few years with Butte County, under that county's name, but became separate again in 1909.

Custer National Forest has its South Dakota portion in Harding County, and South Dakota State University operates the Antelope Range and Livestock Research Station about east of Buffalo.
