We took the tour with our three small children. In the video it was interesting to see the willingness of Ira be so quick to follow the prophet. What a great example. Our missionary tour guide Sister Waite knew all the history and fun facts. Thanks for a great tour.

We had a wonderful time learning about the Hinkley family and seeing so many original artifacts from the 1800's. What a great place to stretch your legs and walk around and tour while traveling or for a day trip. Family friendly and full of wonderful LDS missionaries who welcome you and take you on a wonderful tour.

My wife and I stopped here several years ago before we had kids. We have driven past it at least four times a year since and never stopped. We had some flexibility in our recent drive back to AZ this summer and decided to stop and let the kids see the fort. The missionaries who greeted us when we first... More

Seen the sign many times and decided to go by. Surprised how close it was off the freeway. Short film then nice tour-all free. Fort restored and furnished in detail. Picnic area and clean bathrooms. We highly recommend it.

Great stop between Provo and St. George. Kids had a great time. The tour guide learned each of the children's names and made it personal to them. The best review was from an adolescent that said "It was good. Not like a museum."

Our family had a great time stopping by at Cove Fort, which is in between Fillmore and Beaver in Utah. Our tour guide was amazing!! She helped the kids understand many great things, and exciting things for us as parents too! I love the video that we watched prior to the tour. I would love to attend Cove Fort Days... More

I was very impressed with how everything was restored. Our guide gave equal attention to my 7 and 9 year old daughters as well as my wife and me. Worth the stop.

My grandson thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Cove Fort. The guide was very thoughtful of him and what young boys would like. She allowed him to ask questions, listened when he had something to say, and generally made us feel very welcome. The picnic area, restrooms and shade were welcome. It was informative and authentic. You could see the stage... More

I taught Utah History for several years and always wanted to stop here. It was all I expected and more. The staff of volunteers are knowledgeable about the period and the location. All of my children enjoyed it from the 17 year-old to the 9 year-old. It is a great oasis just off I-15. It's worth the short side trip.... More
