Crossing into Canada at Sault Ste. Marie

Does anyone know if there is a chance of delays when crossing into Canada at Sault Ste. Marie? This will be our first trip into Canada with A 5th wheel so are wondering if it takes time to cross. Thanks for any information.

Welcome to the forum. In about two weeks we'll be making our first crossing into Canada at that same point so I'll be interested in the responses you get.

I cross at Sault Ste Marie every August and no delay entering Canada. Have your passport out and ready. Chit chat with the crossing guard takes more time than any official questions.

Now, re-entering the US is a different story. May take an hour on a weekend. Re-entry weekday delays are substantially less.

I'll be entering Canada at Sault Ste Maria on Thursday about 4PM on my annual fly in fishing trip. 34th trip! Oh Canada!

Entering at SSM has always been quick for me. Port Huron isn't too bad and Detroit is usually miserable.

I made the crossing today. It was uneventful and took <5min.

We had worked to clean out all of the veggies, etc and it turns out nobody even took a peak inside. Boarder Patrol stops along I8 in Arizona take longer... and that's when you're already inside the US.

He did ask about weapons. I explained there were no firearms on board but I did have a hunting knife which I had stowed below. He then asked about mace, pepper spray, etc. I told him there was a can of bear spray stowed below with the hiking equipment and he seemed satisfied with that.

There was a long traffic back up entering the US, which backed up half way back on the bridge.
