This article refers to a region of New York State. For other meanings, see North Country.

The North Country describes the extreme northern frontier of the United States state of New York, bordering Lake Ontario, the Saint Lawrence River (across from the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec), Vermont, and the Adirondack Mountains. Generally speaking, the North Country is understood to be that portion of northern and northwestern New York State which lies outside the Adirondack Park and consists of mostly level lands or Adirondack foothills, but is not within the Adirondack range itself. The region is the most sparsely populated, but also one of the largest in New York State.

The North Country Trail, more formally the "North Country National Scenic Trail," is a 4,000-mile long-distance trail being developed that begins near Lake Champlain in New York State, and traverses New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota.
