Willhoit is an unincorporated community in Ozark County, Missouri. It is located about eight miles north of Gainesville just east of Route 5 on a county road. It lies in a valley at the junction of Ludecker Creek and Barren Fork Creek.
In 1908 a post office was established in the community and named Wilhoit after J. W. Wilhoit. Earlier, in 1895, the post office had been named Arp after a storekeeper. A later postmaster changed the spelling to Willhoit. The post office closed in 1974.
