Gallipolis Island is an island on the Ohio River along the bank at Gallipolis, Ohio and across from Mason County, West Virginia, USA.

While within the boundaries of West Virginia, Gallipolis Island belonged to the city of Gallipolis, Ohio until the city sold the island in 2004 to the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife Service for its inclusion into the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
