Getting Here

Most guests arrive at the border by automobile. International Falls, MN and Baudette, MN are the closest points of entry into Canada. Located just 70 miles from International Falls and 35 miles from Baudette, we are easily accessible with a short drive. Our docking area is located in Morson, Ontario, on the shores of Lake of the Woods. At Morson, you’ll be met and transported to Duck Bay Lodge by boat, a scenic 7-mile ride.

If you are planning to fly commercially, service is available only into International Falls. Several options are available for the remainder of your journey. You can hire a local van service, rent a car, or for a unique adventure, arrive right at our dock by floatplane. We are happy to discuss each option with you and help you with the arrangements.

If you plan to enter Canada in your own aircraft, Fort Frances Municipal Airport offers customs service. Contact us for assistance with your flight planning.
