We were traveling from St George, UT up to Ogden on I15. Sounded like this might be a good place to break up the trip. We arrived and it happened to be Fort Days weekend. They had the fort open and tons of displays around pioneer life. The fort was cool. We viewed all the rooms, climbed up to the... More

We stopped and were happy to find shaded parking and nicely manicured green lawns. We set up our blankets for a picnic and were left to enjoy it. Oh! It was marvellous! We then walked over to Elder May who offered us a tour. He was on month 4 of a six month mission trip. He was extremely informative and... More

I stopped by Cove Fort with my three kids on our drive back to CA. It's nice that it's right off the freeway. Our guide, Sister White, was wonderful, very knowledgeable, and great with my children. I enjoyed learning about the site! We will probably stop by another time!

I have passed the signs for this many times, not knowing how close to the freeway it is. Sorry I waited so long since it's only about a mile off the freeway and easy access back onto I-15. So glad we stopped this time! Had a wonderful tour by Elder Walker, it was very interesting! My almost 17-year old said... More

I'd always wanted to stop here on my way between Salt Lake and southern California, but was always in a hurry. This time, we decided it would make a very nice break, so we stopped and took the tour. We are so glad we did! There was a short movie about Cove Fort and then the very nice tour guide... More

Owned and operated by the LDS church, senior citizen missionaries offer free guided tours of the fort. Tour lasts about 45 minutes and is really quite interesting. No hard sell of the religion, just basic facts of fort life in the late 1800's. Very nicely restored with a picnic area and restrooms. Great rest stop.

This is a great place for a quick stop or an all day trip! The people were friendly, the history was interesting and they had cold water. So theres that.

We stopped at Cove Fort after seeing signs on I15. We were so glad we did! The grounds are immaculate! Our tour guide was Sister Odum and she was very friendly and knowledgeable of the Fort and the surroundings! We enjoyed our visit, it only took about 30-40 minutes of our day and it was worth the time.
