Tipton County is a county located on the western end of the U.S. state of Tennessee, in the Mississippi Delta region. As of the 2010 census, the population was 61,081. Its county seat is Covington.
Tipton County is part of the Memphis, TN–MS–AR Metropolitan Statistical Area.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 473 square miles (1,230 km²), of which 458 square miles (1,190 km²) is land and 15 square miles (39 km²) (3.2%) is water.
The major north-south route, U.S. Highway 51, bisects Tipton County and passes through Covington. The western boundary of Tipton County is the Mississippi River, separating Tennessee and Arkansas. As the river's course was altered in several places by the 1812 New Madrid earthquake, the official boundary still follows the old alignment of the river. As a result, a few of Tipton County's communities — including Reverie and Corona — became stranded on the Arkansas mainland side of the river, rather than the Tennessee side.
Tipton County is situated on the southeastern edge of the New Madrid Seismic Zone, an area with a high earthquake risk.
