Gangneung Station is a railway station on the Yeongdong Line in Gyo-dong, Gangneung, Gangwon, South Korea. All Seatrains and Mugungwha trains stopped at this station until September 14, 2014 when it was closed because of the construction of the Gyeonggang Line (Wonju-Gangneung Line). Because of this, all Mugungwha trains terminated at Jeongdongjin Station.

The Gyeonggang line and Gangneung station will open at December 22, 2017. The KTX-Sancheon train will stop here. However, the Mugunghwa-ho trains still terminate at Jeongdongjin Station until March 2018. This is because there will be many KTX-Sancheon because of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang County. The Mugunghwa-ho train will stop here after 2018 Winter Olympics ends.
