    I think the closest you're going to get is Cherry Creek State Park. It does allow RVs though. Book fast if you want a weekend in the summer.

    Cherry Creek Reservoir is nice. The full hookups sections tend to be dominated by large RVs, but if you all willing to go without elec, you can stay in the cottonwood loop and it is spacious and pretty nice. Bathrooms are very nice there, you can swim in the lake and it is pretty close in, but feels like you are not in the city. We have stayed there many times visiting relatives in the area. About the only drawback is that you must purchase a day park pass in addition to the camping fee for every day that you are going to drive in (or out) or the park. Weekends book very fast as noted.

    Yeah a campground within 30 minutes of Denver is pretty much going to be in Denver and allow RVs..... and they fill FAST. If you can go 45-60 min, then you're getting into tons of stuff in the mountains. Lake Wellington outside Bailey is nice. There are also numerous campgrounds on the peak to peak highway that our family like, (Kelly Dahl & Cold Springs) or there are campgrounds on either side of Guanella Pass, granted you'll need to check what is open depending on the time of year you're going into the mountains.
