Koshkonong is a city in Oregon County, Missouri, United States. The population was 212 at the 2010 census.Koshkonong was named for its numerous sinkhole ponds and small lakes that reminded the construction supervisor of its original railroad's favorite duck hunting spot in Wisconsin, Lake Koshkonong, which was named after wild rice by Native Americans.
