Lake Cook Road Station (also known as Lake Cook Station) is one of two Metra commuter railroad stations in Deerfield, Illinois, along the Milwaukee District/North Line. It is located at 601 Lake Cook Road (hence the name), is 22.9 miles (36.9 km) away from Union Station, the southern terminus of the line,[1] and serves commuters between Union Station and Fox Lake, Illinois. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Lake Cook is in zone E. The station exists along a railroad line that originally served the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.

Unlike the historic Deerfield Station, Lake Cook Road Station is somewhat more modern-looking. Despite classic features, it contains far more contemporary paint trim and a "Metra" sign over the front doorway, rather than anything from the old Milwaukee Road. Parking is available along the west side of the tracks through a frontage road along Lake Cook Road leading to the intersection of Deerlake Road. This is due to the railroad bridge over Lake Cook Road. The parking lot also contains a section strictly for Pace Buses. The station is across the tracks from some shopping centers at the corner of Lake Cook Road and Waukegan Road and is in close proximity to Interstate 94 west of the IL 43 partial interchange.
