You can get into Canada without a passport. But to get back into the US at the Haines Border Station, you'll need a passport.

without knowing your citizenship or visa info, who knows ?

And how do you know which answer you get on this forum is the correct one?

That would be a heckuva a long drive to make, only to turn around and come back.

Don't chance it .... best to look at the US and Canada web sites for border crossing requirements, or contact them with your specific information.

You are going to need a passport - even if you're a US citizen. I have done the trip between AK and Canada many times. Used to be that one could do the crossing with a photo id and birth certificate but no longer (been a while since that was possible, actually).

One other potential consideration is for those who have had DUIs - you can't drive into Canada with a DUI. I know someone who was on his way out of state to the Lower48 and was denied entry at Beaver Creek, Yukon, due to a DUI. He ended up having to turn around, go home and fly to Washington state.
