Lakewood / Fort McPherson is an embankment rail station on the Red and Gold lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It has an island platform between two tracks. It was opened on December 15, 1984. The set up for this station is like many on the East-West line. The way to get to the platform is like at Oakland City only there is a bridge over the road instead of an underpass. This station mainly serves Lakewood, and the neighborhoods around Fort McPherson Military Base.

As the name suggests it provides access to the historic and now defunct Fort McPherson, and Lakewood. Bus service is provided to The Barge Road Park & Ride, Greenbriar Mall, Southside Industrial Park, and Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood.
