  • Though never used in anger. The fort gives a great sense of reality to the living in the period and all the films made. The struggles and pure effort of the family to create the staging post are shown...  more »
  • This fort was built in 1867 by Mormons to provide a safe place to stay for travellers. It was never a defensive fort. Nowaday it's run by Mormons; they give you a very extensive tour of the fort and s...  more »
  • When parked the car a kind lady introduced herself and let us to a room where we could wait to start the (free) tour. We then saw a movie about the fort and afterwards went with the guide Elder Neuman...  more »

  • This was a fantastic stop along the more lonely portion of the 15. Cove Fort was built as a way station for weary travelers, and continues to act in that capacity today. Free guided tours of the Fort, including bedrooms, kitchen, and out buildings are an excellent opportunity to stretch your legs and learn about the American West. They claim to have some of the cleanest bathrooms and, doggoneit, they are clean. There are no shops, but a lovely area to enjoy a meal you brought. While this site is directly connected to Mormonism and hosted by Mormon missionaries, it has broad appeal to anyone interested in life in the wild American West.
  • Super nice folks here. Bathroom cleaner than clean. Interesting history. Educational for both kids and parents.
  • Beautiful, clean, interesting. The staff were friendly and warm. This is a great piece of utah history, and well worth any amount of time spent there.
  • Perfect pitstop. Lots of room for kids to run on the grass and picnic. The tours are free and very educational. They even had little gift for the kids at the end.
  • We loved the fort. The history of the west comes alive when your there. Totally worth the little bit off the highway drive and bring the kids the tour guides are great.
