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.

I've never had any problem there when going into Canada. Coming back into your own country is where it can be fun.....

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.

Have Fun!

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.
