Planning for trip in two weeks. Curious how long it took to cross.
How was it going through customs at International Falls??
Went through Canada customs Friday,6/17/16
12:30pm, 15 min wait.
back through US side Saturday,6/25/16
5:50am,first in line,after a few questions,sent right thru.
drive to boarder was wild, torrential down pour rains, big thunder and blinding lightning
Thanks guys for all the advice. Just ordered half flat nightcrawlers. Leaving Thursday night.... Picking up one of my fishing partners at International Falls Friday morning.... Then drive to Red Lake and spend night there..., fly out Saturday morning. Big Hook Out posts by afternoon !!!
Crossed border yesterday (Friday) around 5:00pm. Over an hour wait. Line was barely crawling. Only 3 booths open. Brutal!!!!
Crossed Friday evening week ago no line. First time I was asked for permission slip from wife to travel with kid. Glad I had it. Otherwiae no hassles. Came back Friday late am 10 minute line. Stayed at Copper River on Canada side and America Best Value before both are fine for our purposes. Stayed at Teepee once it was a certainly no frills but would stay again if needed.
Going into Canada this Friday around noon,usually 10-15 min wait.
coming out the following Saturday around 6am,I'm usually the first or second vehicle in line.
thats at International falls/Fort Francis boarder crossing.
I've never had any problem there when going into Canada. Coming back into your own country is where it can be fun.....
Ill find out again in two weeks tho!! Can't wait!!
We stay at the Tee-pee. about 90.00 a night. Hit the border at 8:00 typically no more than 10-15min. wait
Google Border Wait Times Canada - and click on the Canadian Website at Fort Francis or any others you can see current times or forecasted time lists for wait times.
I have small kids, was thinking to drive up on Friday stay at a cheap motel Friday night either on the USA side or Canada side.
Anyone have motel suggestions?Sorry a little off topic.
Also, interested in the wait times at the hour of day crossing.
