The Collinsport Record was a fanzine published by The Friends of Dark Shadows and Baker Street Productions.

Devoted to the Gothic television serial Dark Shadows, the fanzine was published from Metairie, Louisiana, U.S.A. in the early 1980s. Eight issues were released, the last one in 1987.

The Friends of Dark Shadows was begun in 1983 by the New Orleans branch of The International Dark Shadows Society, led by Sharida Rizzuto, who published four issues of Inside Dark Shadows. After separating from the International Dark Shadows Society, the group published The Collinsport Record and a newsletter, The Collinwood Journal, both edited by Sharida Riszuto with Associate Editor Sidney J. Dragon, the group's Vice President.

Issue 3 appeared in 1984, and featured an interview with actor Jonathan Frid by Ken Friedmann. Issue 7 featured an interview with actor Jerry Lacey.

Baker Street Publications produced other zines, such as Baker Street Gazette, Sleuth Journal, Horizons Beyond, The Vampire Journal, Realm of the Vampire, Movie Memories, and The Haunted Journal.
