Looking for a boondocking spot near Denver

I'd like to get away with the family for a night or two this weekend but we would like to stay within an hour or so of south Denver (Littleton actually).

Does anyone know of a boondocking site that would work? Thank!

If it has to be south, sorry No.

But if you're willing to go west yes! Any of the pull off spots on bear creek from Morrison to Evergreen are nice. You used to be able to camp on Evergreen Lake or the little parks along the creek. Or you can go up 285 towards tiny town or Conifer beautiful as well.

It doesn't have to be south, I was just stating I live a little south of Denver. I am familiar with the 285 route but don't know of anyplace along that route where we can set up camp. Any ideas? We really want to get a night out Saturday night.

I lived in Idledale just up the canyon from Morrison on hwy 74 there is a little park on the north end of town folks used to overnight in next to bear creek. There are also multiple large shoulders in the canyon next to the river on the 11 mile trip from Morrison to Evergreen. There is Large park ( Dedise I believe) in Kittridge just north of Idledale and then another place near Evergreen Lake.
I haven't lived there in 30 years but my parents and sister still do and they see folks camped all the time. You could call the Jefferson County Sheriff Office and ask them since they patrol the roads.

On 285 the was a spot near Tiny Town on the water as well as the 285 Entrance to Kitteridge.

If you go 70 west folks used to stay at Mother Cabrini Shrine and there was/is a campground close to Evergreen/Bergen Park.

Again 30 years ago but I would call the sheriff as they know all good and bad places, friendly folks and might recommend some spots I don't know about.

Take 285 out past Bailey and over Kenosha pass ( there is a USFS campground ontop of kenosha pass also) to Jefferson, turn south on Cty Rd 77(Tarryall Rd) 8 miles to Cty Rd 39. The area back in there has dispersed USFS camping.
