The area appears to be based on the real-life San Mateo County and has four towns: Palomino Creek, Montgomery, Blueberry and Dillimore. Red County is a rural area, containing many hills and forests, as well as a stream running through it, from Palomino Creek in the east to Flint County in the west. There are also many farms in Red County, like Blueberry Acres and the Hilltop Farm.
There is also a police station in Red County, specifically in Dillimore.
Events of GTA: San Andreas
After the shootout with the Ballas at the Mulholland Intersection, protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson is dropped in the countryside by C.R.A.S.H. officers Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Pulaski. There, CJ starts doing various jobs to make money, and to try to get his brother Sweet out of jail. On the advice of Cesar Vialpando, CJ meets with Cesar's cousin Catalina in Dillimore. From her hideout on Fern Ridge, CJ and Catalina then commit several robberies together in the four towns of Red County: a gas station in Dillimore, a liquor store in Blueberry, the betting shop in Montgomery and the bank in Palomino Creek.

- Due to Red County's location, just north of Vinewood (Hollywood), it is possible that it is meant to represent the San Fernando Valley, which is north of Hollywood. The name might also be a reference to Orange County, since both are colors.
- Red County is the only region other than Los Santos that can be safely accessed in the early stages of the game.
- There are some areas that dubbed wrongly as the part of Red County:
- Red County also exists in some form in the HD Universe since it is referenced in GTA IV.
- All safehouses that can be bought in Red County have the same exact interior.
- In one cut scene during a mission, the police act like Andy Taylor and Barney Fife in The Andy Griffith Show, showing the stereotypical incompetency of rural policemen).
