Cove fort is easy to get to just off the I15, from the car park its a short walk to the fort. We were greeted by a guide who walked us around the fort and all the rooms, she was very informative and we learnt a lot about the Mormon settlers. Our guide then left us to wander the fort... More

I stumbled across this fort going to a rest area at the junction of I-15 and I-70. Free parking across the street is marked with free tour listed as well. You will be greeted by an Elder or Sister of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. DO NOT let this scare you off. I was greeted by... More

We stopped at Cove Fort on our way up north this last weekend. We weren't sure what to expect, and had a wonderful time. The movie they showed us and the tour around the fort was excellent! The volunteer workers who are there are very knowledgable and excited to share about the history of the fort and the people who... More

A peaceful historical fort not far off of I-15, totally worth the stop. They offer free tours of the fort, sharing the information they've gathered about how things were ran in the 1800's when Utah was still a territory. In winter the outer buildings aren't open yet but the fort itself is neat. They let you walk up on the... More

At just 1.5 miles off of I-15 between Fillmore and Beaver, Utah, this historical site is an incredible example of the life, sacrifice and dedication of the early pioneers. Each member of my family thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Fort and learning of the daily life and responsibilities of individuals in all age groups. The tour guide was knowledgeable... More

We stopped here to break up our road trip from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City. We only planned on stretching our legs for 10 or 15 minutes but ended up staying for an hour and really enjoyed the time spent here. Cove Fort was very interesting and our guide was extremely friendly and informative. We would definitely recommend visiting... More

We traveled from the Seattle to Utah last August to visit Zion National Park as well as a few of the other sites. On our way back from Zion, we decided to tour Cove Fort. It's an old Mormon fort that has been beautifully restored by the Mormon Church. It's an easy off/on from the highway. After we parked, we... More

On our way to Park City, Utah we stopped to stretch our legs and experience Cove Fort. Cove Fort was a stopping place for weary travelers from 1863 to 1890. We had an Elder for a tour guide and it was quite informative. The tour was about 30-45 minutes long and worth the stop.

Lots of awesome info about the Old West. The fort is beautifully restored. I learned a lot even though I know quite a bit about the time period/area. The senior missionaries that guide you around are super too!
