Pascagoula is a closed Amtrak intercity train station in Pascagoula, Mississippi, United States. Service on this section of the Sunset Limited has been suspended since Hurricane Katrina struck Pascagoula in 2005.

The Pascagoula station was originally the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Depot, serving the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. It was restored during the 1970s and converted into an Amtrak station. The station is on the National Register of Historic Places[1] and was designated a Mississippi Landmark by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.[2] In addition, the station serves as an art gallery owned by the Singing River Art Association.
