Lonedell is an unincorporated community in southeastern Franklin County, Missouri, United States.[1] It is at the intersection of Route 30 and routes N and FF and approximately eight miles east of St. Clair. The Little Meramac River flows just south of the community.[2]

A post office called Lone Dell was established in 1879, and the spelling was changed to Lonedell in 1895.[3] The community was named for the remote dell in which it is located.[4]
