The station was opened as North Camp, Aldershot named after the nearby North Camp area of Farnborough. The station has changed name a number of times over the years. It was renamed Aldershot Camp in 1863, then to Aldershot (North Camp) in 1879. In 1910 the name was changed to Aldershot (North Camp) & South Farnborough, in 1923 this shortened to Aldershot (North). However, the following year the name was changed again to North Camp and it has remained unchanged ever since!

The station goods yard was removed in 1969 but the station building, which was reputedly designed by Lord Kitchener [1], remains in place though nowadays is used by a dental practice. The station is managed by GWR who provide up to two services an hour in each direction between Reading and Redhill.
