We have considered this visit for some time and finally made it. This 1-2 hour stop is well worth the time. The story of the pioneer family who created this fort is inspiring. The fort, furnishings and period pieces are all excellent.

This is a really neat place to stop, it's only a mile off of the freeway. A tour only took 30 minutes or so and it was a really interesting and inspiring experience. The fort is beautiful and the tour guides are friendly and knowledgable.

It was a great representation of frontier life for a family who lived their lives with faith and fortitude. The bathrooms were very clean.

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!
