Crossing the Border

When traveling into Canada from the US, you have the choice of two border crossings. Most customers use the International Falls crossing, however Grand Portage (Pigeon River) has become a popular alternative crossing point with less traffic congestion, friendly border patrol and scenic landscape. Both lead you right to camp, so it all comes down to personal preference.

A valid Passport is required for access into Canada. You may obtain a land-only passport card if you do not plan to do any air travel to another country. Otherwise, plan ahead and obtain your Passport booklet well in advance as turnaroud times can be long.

If you have a D.U.I., D.W.I., or felony, you may be denied entry into Canada. Click here for more information.

Firearm Permit

All bear hunters will need to register their firearms at the border for a fee of $25. This permit is valid for a period of 60 days. Click here to download the printable permit.

Fishing & Hunting Licenses

Anglers and Hunters must purchase non-resident licenses prior to arriving at camp. These are available at several bait/tackle stores and gas stations along the route to camp, or online. To purchase a non-resident license, you must have a vaild Outdoors Card in addition to a valid drivers license, ID or Passport. The Outdoors Card is a new plastic, wallet-sized card issued by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and used for identification and administrative purposes. If you don't already have one, they will issue you a temporary Outdoors Card (paper) at the time you purchase your license that you must keep with your license for the duration of the trip. This will give you temporary exemption until your official card is mailed to your home address (usually 4-8 weeks). Bear hunters should bring an old license, deer tag or hunters safety card to show proof that you have prior hunting experience in the United States.
