My husband and I stopped while passing through. and very glad we did! This is one of Utah's most well restored pioneer treasures, just two miles off of I15. Free, imformative and friendly tours given daily on arrival. We will certainly be back with the kids in the future.

We arrived at Cove Fort in the early afternoon to be greeted by very friendly missionaries of the LDS church. While the tour is presented with sharing of LDS bible beliefs it was very educational, no feeling of religious cramming and good for school age and up through senior retirees.

We've stopped here several times to let the kids run around and stretch their legs. The tour is really interesting and very well done. Good historical information and a nice break from driving.

It is a very interesting historical stop open year round. You see what an old West way station looked like. The construction is amazing for its day. The free tour was great.

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!
