Dholpur District is a district of Rajasthan state in western India. The town of Dholpur is the district headquarters.

Dholpur District has an area of 3084 km². The Chambal River forms the southern boundary of the district, across which lies the state of Madhya Pradesh. The district is bounded by the state of Uttar Pradesh on the east and northeast, by Bharatpur District of Rajasthan on the northwest, and Karauli District of Rajasthan on the west. All along the bank of the Chambal River the district is deeply intersected by ravines; low ranges of hills in the western portion of the district supply quarries of fine-grained and easily-worked red sandstone.

The population of the district is 982,815 (2001 census), with a population density of 324 persons per km². The population grew 31.2% between 1991 and 2001. The literacy rate is 60.1% in 2001, 75.1% for males and 41.8% for females. Administratively the district is divided into four subdivisions, Dholpur, Badi, Rajakhera, and Basedi, and five tehsils, Dholpur, Badi, Rajakhera, Basedi, and Saipau.

The economy of the district is primarily agricultural.
