Toksong is a county in Hamgyongnam-do, North Korea. It is largely mountainous, but the southern area is low lying. The Pujonryong, Taedok, and Kodubong (거두봉) ranges pass through the country. The highest point is Huisabong. Major streams include the Kosochon (거서천), Konpachon (곤파천), and Tongpalryongchon (통팔령천).

Temperatures are typically quite low. About 89% of the county is forestland, of which some 70% is coniferous. Thanks to this, lumber is an important local industry.

The local economy is centered on manufacturing, although agriculture plays a role. Manufacturing accounts for 90% o local production. Local crops include maize, soybeans, an potatoes; these are chiefly grown along the glens. There are orchards and silkworm farms. Mining is supported and deposits of iron ore, gold, fluorspar, and magnetite can be found. Hydroelectric power stations also can be found in the county.

Toksong is served by railroads including the Toksong Line.
