Pinecreek / Piney at Minnesota Highway 89 and Manitoba Highway 89
This is the least-used border crossing in Minnesota, and in the bottom 10 for the entire U.S./Canadian border. This is farm country, and the township of Pinecreek is unincorporated and sparsely populated. The U.S. port averages less than 25 vehicles per day, so there are rarely any border lineups.
This is also home to the Piney Pinecreek Border Airport, which is one of three small airports that feature international runways. Small aircraft can land at this airport from either country, be inspected by officers from the other country, and if admitted, continue to fly into the other country. The airport serves approximately 250 small planes per month, bringing tourists, hunters and fishermen to the region.
Before heading to the border, be sure to review our pages on preparing for customs and prohibited items.
