I wanna say the passport thing started in 2010.
In Michigan you can get an enhanced license/id (costs around 40 bucks) and it works the same as a passport for ground travel between US/Canada and US/Mexico.
I'm not sure if they're only sold in border states, but if you can get one it would be the fastest/cheapest option.
Everyone you're with will need one though.
Alternately you're allowed into Canada without a passport or enhanced license but need it to get back into the US, so if you don't mind being detained for a few hours by border patrol, they'll probably let you go once they figure out you aren't a terrorist or drug mule.
Edit: The last time being in Ontario without a passport for me was May 2009 while camping with some people. We hit the bar in town to catch the Wings series against Chicago that weekend. It was a yearly thing and then by the next year we weren't able to do it because not everyone could cross. Either way, it's understandable why the law kicked in, but its still dumb. Its really no more secure than just needing a current ID and birth certificate.
