Cutthroat Bay is located in scenic Granby Colorado. It is popular in the summer months, especially around the summer holidays such as Labor Day, Memorial Day, and Fourth of July. Cutthroat Bay does allow dogs, however, there is little about the rules around having your pooch at the campground.
Cutthroat Bay is located north of the beautiful Lake Granby. Because of beetle kill, there are very few trees, so there is very little shade. There is drinking water available for campers as well as vault toilets. However, it’s unknown if there are showers available or not. Unfortunately because of the risk of fire is high, campfires are currently prohibited. As mentioned, the most popular time to visit is in the summer, and if you’re looking to stay around the Fourth of July, it’s best to make reservations early as campgrounds in the area fill up very quickly.
There are two group campsites that allow you to have thirty people on each site. They also include 12 tent pads, a picnic shelter, and a place to build a campfire when allowed. There are also other fun amenities such as horseshoe pits and a volleyball court for you and your group to enjoy. Speaking of amenities, it’s not clear if there are any for Fido. So, be sure to bring your own poop bags, food, bedding, and anything else your pup might need for a comfortable stay. Always be sure to keep an eye on your dog and clean up after them for the comfort of everyone.
It is important to keep in mind there is wildlife such as bears and moose around. Stay alert and be careful. Also, this campground is located at 8,300 feet. So it’s much easier to dehydrate and sunburn. So drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen, and make sure your pooch drinks plenty of water as well.
