For most of its passenger services, it was the terminal station. A few services, connecting with the steamer services to Tarbet and Inversnaid, continued to Balloch Pier. This pattern of service continued after electrification of the line in the 1960s.

The station was closed on 23 April 1988 and was replaced by Balloch station, situated immediately south of a level crossing. This relocation allowed the level crossing to be closed. Today the station building has been converted into the Tourist Information Centre. A section of platform survives behind the building.
