Cove Fort offers a free tour of a fort from the frontier era of the United States. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the items on display. He offered great information that kept the teens and adults interested. We learned about Utah History, a little of the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints... More

I love history, stopping and learning about Cove Fort was great. Not only did I learn a little about Utah History and LDS Church History, but out tour guide knew a fair bit about the items that are in the Fort as well. It was really cool to see all of those antique items and learn about how those items... More

It was a great representation of frontier life for a family who lived their lives with faith and fortitude. The bathrooms were very clean.

What a fun place to take a family! The free tour is a "must-do" if you are passing through this area of the state. Fun and an outstanding history.

I learned about good, industrious people. Most of all, I felt the Spirit there. God is good and He cares about people. He let me know at this location. It was a very informative tour. I highly recommend this place to all .

My husband and 2 grand-daughters (ages 11 and 13) visited Cove Fort the end of March. It was a great experience. Our guide was extremely knowledable and gave us little insights to the rooms inside the fort. I would recommend this as a MUST SEE on a trip to southern Utah.

Every time we head down to St. George we pass Cove Fort. Every time we say we should check it out. We finally stopped on our way home on March 24, 2014. It was well worth the time. We really enjoyed the tour. The Missionaries are very knowledgeable. I loved the period décor. August 1st and 2nd will be Cove... More

The fort itself is really cool. It's very well preserved and offers a neat insight into life during those times. The tour guide was friendly and informative, and I'm giving the place a four star rating based on the quality of the attraction. BUT... We didn't really appreciate her attempts to introduce us to the LDS church. I didn't know... More

The restoration of the fort with period pieces is a great picture of what life was like then. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. This was the perfect time to visit. The weather was just right and there were few other visitors so we had a tour guide just for our group. Anyone traveling through the area needs to... More

We enjoyed seeing the fort on Sunday, March 9, 2014. We appreciated the clean restrooms. The guide was very pleasant, knowledgeable and took his time to show us all facets of the fort. He answered our questions thoroughly. It was fun to see how a way station looked like back in the 1800's. The door of the fort was amazing... More
