Historic Cove Fort
Cove Fort is a roadside attraction near the intersection of I70 and I15 in Central Utah. This fort was built in 1867 by early Utah Pioneers to protect communications and travelers in Southern Utah. The fort was recently restored by the LDS Church. It is a fun place to stop and stretch the legs on trips through central Utah.
