Suuwassea (meaning "ancient thunder") is a genus of dicraeosaurid sauropod dinosaur found in the Upper Jurassic strata of the Morrison Formation, located in southern Carbon County, Montana, United States.

They consist of a disarticulated but associated partial skeleton, including partial vertebral series and limb bones.
