Cove is located in Union County, 17 miles east of La Grande along Highway 237. It lies at the foot of Mt. Fanny on the eastern edge of the lush Grande Ronde Valley. This picturesque community is situated in a natural pocket where Mill Creek flows from the Wallowa Mountains.

Recreation highlights include Cove Hot Springs pool, which operates during the summer, and Moss Springs USFS Campground and trailhead into the Eagle Creek Wilderness.
