Any problems going to Canada? Or coming back?

Planning a trip north this summer. Possibly heading up to PEI, but at least hitting the 1000 islands area. I've viewed a number of threads regarding where to camp on this trip, and spoken with friends who have been there and I'm very excited.
However, it's been a while since I crossed the border- since before there was a requirement to carry a passport- and I've never done it with a camper. I also have a guilty face.
What level of Hell am I in for?

Bring lots of money. Gas ain't cheap. Other than that, you shouldn't have any issues at the border, unless you are guilty.

If you go to the FROG website -- www.forestriverfrog.com -- and click on "Useful Links" you'll find links to both the U.S Customs and Border Protection and the Canadian Border Services Agency websites. They give you information that you might find valuable in crossing in both directions.

Have a great trip!

We had no issues whatsoever. Passports are key of course. Also, if you bring pets, make sure to have current veterinary papers with their immunization records. The gas comment is right on the money. OMG it is expensive!!

This is probablly your best advice. However, assuming that you are a U.S. citizen, you won't require a passport as other forms of I.D. will suffice, BUT if you and your fellow travellers do have passports, bring them. It will simplify matters greatly. Oh, and leave your guns at home - big hassle if you want to bring them.

And more importantly, you can only bring 40 oz liquor or 24 beer. Forget the beer, our beer is better in Canada anyway. Just bring me a 40 oz of rum (dark)

If you are coming to the 1000 Island region I will be glad to help you with any info that you may require. We have a summer site at the Mallorytown 1000 Islands KOA.

Anyone crossing the border needs a passport now, especially if you want to get back into the U.S.. Other than that just tell the truth, be co-operative, bring no firearms or ammo and know the import export rules regarding food and dollar value limits, again especially when returning home. Most of all be prepared to have fun if you get to P.E.I.. We got there a couple of years ago and can,t wait to go back. Enjoy Canada. Old Guys
