Hastings County is world-famous for its varied mineralogy and mineral collecting potential. An important part of the region's economy derives from mineralogical tourism.

Hastings County is divided into towns, townships, municipalities, two separated municipalities, and a territory. The divisions are: Town of Bancroft, Town of Deseronto, Municipality of Centre Hastings, Municipality of Hastings Highlands, Township of Carlow/Mayo, Township of Faraday, Township of Limerick, Township of Madoc, Municipality (township) of Marmora and Lake, Township of Stirling-Rawdon, Township of Tudor and Cashel, Municipality of Tweed, Township of Tyendinaga, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory (a First Nation Reserve), and Township of Wollaston. Two cities, Belleville and Quinte West, are located in Hastings County, but have their own government separate from Hastings County government.
