Massapequa Station is a Long Island Rail Road station in Massapequa, New York. It is officially located on Sunrise Highway east of Broadway and NY 107 and parking lots are located far beyond its given location. The station serves the Babylon Branch, which leads to the Montauk Branch.

Massapequa Station is typical of the elevated Babylon Branch trains that were rebuilt during the mid-to-late 20th Century. It was originally built by the South Side Railroad of Long Island in October 28, 1867 as "South Oyster Bay Station," until May, 1889. The second relocated depot was built May and June 1891, and razed in January 1953 as part of the grade elimination project of the post-war era. A temporary station was relocated west of the former location on January 12, 1953, and the current elevated structure was in service between December 14 & 18, 1953.

Massapequa Station is near the west side of Massapequa Preserve State Park. During much of the mid-20th Century, Robert Moses wanted to extend the Bethpage State Parkway along the west side of the park down to Merrick Road.
