The hosts provided an informative tour that even appealed to my young kids. There were some interesting historic artifacts. I was also impressed with the shaded, grassy picnic area with tables and nice trees. The bathrooms were very clean.

We came across Cove Fort by chance and were delighted. We were greeted warmly by the hosts, and were given a private tour. It was excellent. I highly recommend it if you want to know more about pioneers and history of Utah.

I am not sure if the dogs would be allowed. Much of the exhibit is outside. It is an LDS run facility and the missionaries are usually very accomodating.

With a full tour, plan about 45 minutes, but let the guides know what your time constraints are and they can customize it to as long or as short as you need!
