Hampole railway station was situated on the main line of the West Riding and Grimsby Railway between Carcroft & Adwick-le-Street and South Elmsall. It was close by and served the village of Hampole, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England.

The station, opened in January 1885, was a simple affair with wooden platforms and waiting shelters. There was a separate Station Master's house, which was situated at the roadside by the station approach.

The station closed on 7 January 1952.
