?obez County (Polish: powiat ?obeski) is a unit of territorial administration and local government (powiat) in West Pomeranian Voivodeship, north-western Poland. Its administrative seat and largest town is ?obez, which lies 73 kilometres (45 mi) east of the regional capital Szczecin. The county contains three other towns: Resko, 24 km (15 mi) north-west of ?obez, W?gorzyno, 12 km (7 mi) south of ?obez, and Dobra, 22 km (14 mi) west of ?obez.

A ?obez County existed prior to the abolition of the powiats in 1975. When they were reintroduced in the Polish local government reforms of 1999, there was initially no ?obez County. The present-day county was created later, in 2002, out of parts of Gryfice County, Goleniów County and Stargard County (to which ?obez itself had belonged).

The county covers an area of 1,065.13 square kilometres (411.2 sq mi). As of 2006 its total population is 38,232, out of which the population of ?obez is 10,617, that of Resko is 4,377, that of W?gorzyno is 3,011, that of Dobra is 2,028, and the rural population is 18,199.
