The Williston Amtrak station is a train station in Williston, North Dakota, United States served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. The brick station was built in 1910 by the Great Northern Railway[2] and is located at the southern end of Williston's downtown.

An interior and exterior restoration, begun in 2010 and costing almost $2 million, has returned the station to its original look. [3]

Williston is served by Amtrak's daily Empire Builder.

With the recent opening of new oil fields in North Dakota in the 21st century, many oil production workers now also board and detrain in Williston, adding additional passengers to the route.
