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.

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!
