Budal is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1879 until its dissolution in 1964. It encompassed the Bua and Ena river valleys in the south-central part of the what is now Midtre Gauldal municipality in Trøndelag county. The administrative center of Budal was the village of Enodden where Budal Church is located.
The parish of Budal was established as a municipality in 1879 when it was separated from the municipality of Støren. Initially, Budal had a population of 585. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, Budal (population: 529) was merged with the municipalities of Singsås (population: 1,554), Soknedal (population: 1,916), and Støren (population: 2,296) to form the new municipality of Midtre Gauldal.
