Coso (also, Granite Springs) was a settlement in Inyo County, California. It is located in the Coso Range 4 miles (6.4 km) east-southeast of Coso Peak. Today, Coso is located within Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake.

Dr. Darwin French discovered gold at the site in 1860. The place was named Granite Springs in 1860. The name Coso comes from the Coso people, local Native Americans.
