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.

we travel at least once a month back and forth Fillmore and st. George area. I often have to miniature dachshunds traveling with my daughter and I. They are super mild-mannered. If we can hold them in our arms would it be okay to stop by so my 13 year old can check out Cove Fort. It just seems like anytime I have time to stop are little babies are with us.

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!
