The station was opened in 1834 as Milford railway station. The name was changed to South Milford station in 1867.
Facilities at the station are limited - there are shelters on each platform and passenger information screens, but no ticket office, footbridge or subway (the platforms are linked by a barrow crossing with warning signs & signals). Travellers must buy their tickets on the train.
The station did have buildings and a signal box up until at least 1979 (the main building was one of the last remaining examples of original Leeds and Selby Railway architecture), but these were subsequently demolished.
