The station was situated at the end of a short branch line off the Yorkshire Coast Line. It had four long terminus island platforms to cater for the large number of holiday makers arriving and departing from the holiday camp each Saturday during the holiday season. The station was located to the west of the A165 and was connected to the holiday camp by a private subway under the road. Passengers were taken to and from the station by a road train using this subway. Passenger numbers dropped significantly as more people arrived at the camp by car, and the station closed to passengers on 17 July 1977.
