I have a location and need to know the proper way to write it.
Either Pirate's Cove, or Pirates' Cove
Can I use either or is one more correct than the other?

It depends on whether it was one pirate or several. The first spelling would be used if it was one pirate, the second if it was more than one.

Lazzah is correct, though I expect most people would prefer to see the first one?
