We love camping in Canada and recently crossed into Ontario from Michigan for a short getaway on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

We crossed via the Blue Water Bridge from Port Huron, MI to Sarnia, ON and ended up in a spectacular campsite directly on the water at Presquile Provincial Park. Except for the always horrendous traffic around Toronto Canada’s largest city, it couldn’t have gone any better.

We’ve found a lot of RVers are unnecessarily nervous about crossing over into Canada in an RV and we did this video to show you how easy it is. U.S. citizens need a passport or passport card (that’s what Jennifer and I have) and you should have proof of your pet’s vaccinations if you are accompanied by a dog. We have never been asked to show them but we always do have them wherever we travel.

Firearms are not permitted and there is a very stiff penalty involved if you try to do so. Hunters can make prior arrangements but this is the one question you will be asked and the answer better be no. You should’t be bringing in a large quantity of cash or merchandise. You may be asked about alcohol or food. We’ve found groceries and a few bottles of beer or wine meant for personal consumption has never been a problem.

Go to the Canada Border Services Agency website and check the latest requirements at https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html

Come on along with us in this video. We document what’s involved in entering Canada, show you the route and give you a quick tour of the park. 

Here’s the video, posted on the RV Lifestyle Channel on YouTube.
