Ingleside Station is the penultimate commuter railroad station along Metra's Milwaukee District/North Line in Ingleside, Illinois. The station is officially located on Washington Street and Rollins Road (Lake County Roads 31 and A20), however the actual location is off of Rollins Road itself. The station is 47.8 miles (76.9 km) away from Union Station, the southern terminus of the line,[1] and serves commuters between Union Station and nearby Fox Lake, Illinois. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Ingleside is in zone J. The station exists along a railroad line that originally served the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.

Ingleside Station is little more than an enclosed shelter. Parking is available along the north side of the tracks on the southeast corner of Jefferson Avenue and Rollins Road to a plot of land that's in line with Madison Avenue, a street that dead ends north of Rollins Road. Washington Street merley intersects with Rollins Road and the main parking lot entrance. The station is near locations such as Duck Lake and Fox Lake Veterans Memorial Park.
