Øvre Rendal is a former municipality in Hedmark county, Norway. It was originally (from 1837) a part of Rendal formannskapsdistrikt.

On 1 January 1880 Rendal was split in two to create the municipalities Ytre Rendal og Øvre Rendal. At the point of creation Øvre Rendal had a population of 1,868.

After border adjustments in the municipalities Ytre Rendal and Øvre Rendal, Tolga and Trysil, the new municipality Engerdal was created on 1 January 1911. Øvre Rendal ceded a district with 381 inhabitants to Engerdal.

On 1 January 1965 the new municipality Rendalen was created by merging Ytre and Øvre Rendal. Before the merger Øvre Rendal had a population of 1,629.
