Koshkonong is a city in Oregon County, Missouri, United States. The population was 212 at the 2010 census.

Koshkonong was once part of southern Missouri's fruitbelt that sprung up along the railroads in the area. The orchards have since been replaced with pasture land. Koshkonong was also one of the chosen places for the Missouri state capital, but was denied because it was too close to the state border.
