Well preserved and interesting. You can watch a movie about the history, but you can look in each room of the fort as well. Definitely worth stopping by on your way through Utah.

Take a step back in time to see how the pioneers settled and prospered. The gardens are simply amazing. Staff was friendly and informative about all aspects of pioneer daily life.

This is a very impressive restoration of an 1870's historical site. The site is pristine and is very authentic to the period. You can spend as little as 30 minutes or as much as 90 minutes. I've been to lots of "historical" sites and this is one of the best. It was amazing some of the things we learned about... More

We stopped here on our way back home from a wedding and really enjoyed how well this is put together and presented. Even our reluctant teenagers enjoyed it. Our tour guide was excellent.

Over the years I have passed Cove Fort and have never stopped, thinking some day I will. I finally did and it was worth it. The hosts were very knowledgable and helpful. The fort is worth seeing.

We were so impressed with the Cove Fort tour this visit. My husband and I had visited the Fort several times when we were children and finally decided to take our children. Our kids are 10, 7, 4, and 6 months. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The bathrooms are spotless and the grounds are breathtaking! The Fort... More

We stopped on our way back home from California, mostly to get out and walk around and take a break from driving. I'm so glad we did! Our tour guide was an older LDS missionary women who was very nice and patient with my young kids. She took extra time answering questions and making sure my kids had a good... More

Driving from California to Denver with our 8 year old and needed a break. We stopped at Cove Fort and although we didn't have time for the complete tour, we were taken through the fort by Sister Hegwer who was kind and knowledgeable. The fort has been restored and has authentic decor for the time period. You really get a... More

We recently made a trip from Las Vegas to Yellowstone National Park, and Cove Fort seemed like a good place for us to stop and give the kids a chance to stretch their legs and learn about a simpler time. We are so glad that we decided to make the stop. Every one of us learned something, and the fort... More

Looking for a nice point to take a break midway between a drive from SLC to Vegas, I found this fort on the map. So glad we stopped by! We didn't have time for a long visit so we didn't watch a video or anything, we just had a nice elderly Mormon Missionary take us around on a tour of... More
