Campsie station opened on 1 February 1895 when the Bankstown line opened from Sydenham to Belmore.[2][3]

In 1915, the station was remodelled when the Metropolitan Goods Line was built to the north of the existing lines. Platforms were provided that were used by railway workers' trains to Enfield South, Delec and Hope Street. These services ceased in 1996. These shorter platforms remain in situ, however with the Metropolitan Goods Line not connected to the Sydney Trains network, are not used.

In 2001, a new booking office was opened on the footbridge.[3]

The left two tracks at Campsie are the Metropolitan Goods Line. Just west of Campsie, they diverge from the Bankstown line and travel toward Enfield Yard. Platforms are provided for these lines, but they are not used and the platform for the Up Goods is not accessible to the public. The two platforms on the right are for the Bankstown line. There are crossovers east and west of the station allowing trains from both directions to terminate at Campsie. This is normally only done during trackwork or if there is an incident on the line. The crossovers can also allow a limited stops train to overtake a late running all stops train, which is very rarely done. However, this movement is done once a day, usually on a late night service, as a points cleaning movement (all points on the network must be traversed at least once every 24 hours to ensure they are working properly).
