What a wonderful place with lots of history - an oasis in the desert! You must visit - no charge and the missionaries are awesome!

“Awesome Family Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Cove fort is an awesome break from the monotonous highway. Our three daughters had a great time watching the 14 minute film, running around the old fort, and learning about life in the past. They loved how they were allowed to see and experience the old fort. They climbed the stairs and took fun pictures as they learned about the pioneer days of Utah. The restroom facilities are clean and welcoming. There is a no pressure tour of the site and the guides are very knowledgeable.

“Great way to break up a drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Cove Fort is a favorite stop of ours on the long drive between northern and southern Utah. We enjoy the tour of the restored fort. The kids look forward to the stories about pioneer life and the little toy they get at the end. We especially enjoy having our picnic under the huge shade trees, and the clean restrooms. The folks giving tours are always kind and informative. Great place!

“an excellent stop along the highway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We were traveling from Zion to Salt Lake City and this was one of the rest stop in between. We were being greeted by a very friendly Sister Lidelle . She showed us around and explained some past history of the fort. We r not followers of LDS. I was surprised that Sister Lidelle did not even mention a thing about that and it certainly lifted the pressure in my heart. I honestly have to say that really gave a positive impression. Really appreciate what they r doing with the fort and would highly recommend.
