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.
