Detroit Lakes is an Amtrak intercity train station in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, served by Amtrak's daily Empire Builder. The building was originally built by the Northern Pacific Railroad and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1988.

The station was renovated in 2010 under the direction of the local White Earth Reservation and the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The exterior brickwork was cleaned; wood soffits repaired; and window and door trim painted. On the interior, the space was reconfigured to accommodate retail kiosks.[4]
