Bingen–White Salmon is a train station in Bingen, Washington served by Amtrak. The unstaffed station is part of a larger BNSF dispatch center located one block south of Stuben St. (SR 14) in Bingen. The building is orangish-yellow in color.

The station's predecessors were named after both Bingen and nearby White Salmon by a court order in 1910,[3] and formally introduced in 1930 by the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway.[4] The current station was built in 1992.[4]
