Kelling Heath Park is a small halt on the North Norfolk Railway (NNR), used mostly by hikers using Kelling Heath.[1] It was not on the original British Rail line, but was opened after the line was preserved.

The station was opened in 1983 as part of the NNR's extension to Kelling; a very short half coach-length halt was constructed principally to serve the nearby caravan park. Upon the completion of the extension to Holt in 1989, Kelling Camp Halt was demolished and a new longer platform was constructed ¼ of a mile further up the hill to the west; the station was also renamed "Kelling Heath Park". In March 1998, a new down distant signal was brought into use at the eastern end of Kelling Cutting.[2]
