Absolutely no line going north on a Tuesday morning at 10.30am.
Easy peasy. Might be difficult to navigate this crossing with big big rigs or trucks towing trailers.
The officier was extremely unfriendly and told be i should have choose a different crossing but eh oh whatever.Report Check-In

This is a guest post from Sjoerd Bakker from a July 2014 Crossing.
British Columbia to Washington
From BC Highway 3. The Crow's Nest Highway
NIGHTHAWK is a very small and lightly used border crossing in the beautiful desert Similkameen Valley located one mountain range west of the Okanagan Valley and Osoyoos BC , 2km south off BC Higway 3 .
In Washington it is fed by paved state and county roads from TONASKET and OROVILLE which are both on US 97
Nighthawk is open only during daylight from 9 am until 5 pm and gates are closed beyond these hours .
The photo shows all there is to see , coming from Canada.
Canada Customs has their small office on left side of road and a short distance south the road makes a 90 degree turn east into the USA Customs facility ( white steel roof) which also has the mentioned gate and fences .
Have your documents ready and you should be through this border in a matter of minutes. Two vehicles may be considered a long lineup .
It is so simple nobody can fail to find it and get through.Report Check-In
