Bamfields (also spelled Bamfield) was a station on the Au Sable and Northwestern Railroad near what was then known as the Bamfield Pond. A post office was established on December 27, 1922, with March C. Freeman as postmaster. The office closed on June 30, 1924, or about the time the Alcona Dam Pond was created.

An old toll bridge made of logs, called the Bliss Bridge, crossed the Au Sable River here. It was later replaced by the Bamfield Bridge, which was made from hewed timber. The area where the bridges were located are now under the waters of the Alcona Dam Pond.
