Oberkampf is a station of the Paris Métro, serving Line 5 and Line 9.

The station was opened on 15 January 1907, a month after the opening of the extension of line 5 from Quai de la Rapée to Lancry (now called Jacques Bonsergent) on 17 December 1906. The line 9 platforms were opened on 10 December 1933 with the extension of the line from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Montreuil.

The name refers to Rue Oberkampf, named for Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, an 18th-century German-born French industrialist.
