Renville County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Dakota. As of the 2010 census, the population was 2,470. Its county seat is Mohall.

The first Renville County was created by the 1872-73 Dakota Territory legislature, but was dissolved because of too little settlement. The name was then brought back in the 1908 general election under a proposal to divide Ward County. Though defeated on election day, the matter went to court, which led to the creation of the present-day Renville County in 1910. The county government was first organized on July 23, 1910; Mohall has always been the county seat. The county's name honors Joseph Renville, an interpreter, translator, and important figure in dealings between white men and the Sioux.

Renville County is part of the Minot Micropolitan Statistical Area. It is south from the Canadian border of Saskatchewan.
