  • The fort itself is quite small but well preserved and has become a museum of Mormon life in the late 19th century. Each carload of visitors is met by a guide in the carpark and shown into a small cine...  read more »
  • This is run by the Mormons, but they are not pushy. Very subtle references to their religion. Very very well done. There is no charge and would be great for a family. There is a short film and a guide...  read more »
  • Loved touring this historical area to learn how the Mormons lived. Sister May was so delightful and informative. I used some of the information I learned on this trip when I went to the prophet Brigha...  read more »
  • Elder White was a wonderful man to have for the tour! We learned a lot about the history of Fort Cove. We really enjoyed the walk through the fort and around the grounds. It is a tour of the History of LDS but you don't have to be LDS to take the tour and at no time was we pressured to join them. They have picnic tables to enjoy your lunch at with grass and trees. A nice retreat in a desert area. Only 1.5 or less off of I -15.
  • Great tour! Missionary volunteers were very knowledgeable and gave a great experience. We spent about an hour at a great historical site and the whole family enjoyed it. Our teenagers said they really liked it.
  • Awesome place to check out elder cyprus was an amazing guide learned so much history from this tour will definetly be back
  • Great way to see what life was like along 1-15 back in the 1860s. I'm glad the speed limit is 80mph, but this place is a great stop over. Lots of interesting stories to hear, and great old items to see.
  • You're in Utah, this fort was established then restored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons or LDS) so they have a heavy presence at this site. They do offer a 15 minute video that shows the history of the site, and guided tours. We noticed several people just walking around though. The fort is interesting to walk thru and most of the rooms are accessible or viewable. You can also access the upper wall walkway above the entrance. The LDS missionaries were available and willing to take our family pictures. Don't forget to walk around after the tour to visit the buildings and grounds surrounding the fort. The bathrooms are clean and larger than I expected.
