Catterick Camp railway station was a railway station in what is now the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. It was built as the terminus of the sub branch of the Eryholme-Richmond branch line to serve Catterick Camp, now Catterick Garrison. Along with the rest of the stations on the branch it was closed in 1964.

On 15 September 1917, a set of carriages ran away from the station and were derailed. Three people were killed.[1]
