  • If you're travelling from Salt Lake City to Zion (and vise versa), I would highly recommend stopping by Cove Fort as it's located almost exactly halfway between the two. As an added bonus, the tours are free of charge. Our own guide was very friendly and had plenty to tell us about the history of the fort (thank you, Elder Butler!) If you're short on time, the guides are willing to compensate as to not keep you too long. If you're even slightly interested in Utah's history, then I'd say Cove Fort is worth your time.
  • Awesome stop just a couple minutes off the freeway! Tons of history to learn about and games for the kids. Cleanest restrooms you will ever see, much better than gas stations that advertise "Cleanest restrooms"! Great stop to bring a sack lunch and enjoy some peace and quiet.
  • Awesome place to visit. Elder Sessions gave us a personalized tour with lots of great insight. This old dog even learner a few things! Highly recommend stopping here.
  • We had a pleasant tour of this living history exhibit. The tour was free. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient, and our children enjoyed having their many questions answered.
  • Cove Fort Days, is the first weekend in August. There was so much to do and see. Everyone was nice . It was a fun family trip to learn a little history.
