Highline - probably more privacy and less feeling like you are camping in the middle of town.

James M Robb - More of a central location to the three main trail networks (Lunch Loops, 18rd, Kokopelli). Can walk or bike to restaurants, etc....

I would probably camp at Highline if it was me.

If you look at this map, what you won't see is a couple gas stations, a mcdonalds, a wendy's, etc.... that would also be ON the map.

Highline. Further to Lunch Loops, but closer to Rabbit Valley. It's about a wash (compared to Cobb) when going to Koko or 18-Road.

Cement benches, pebble filled tent pads, bathrooms, views of the local truck stop (smells too) - go to Highline and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Don't forget the endless generators running on the road maggots. Of course they kind of blend in with the I-70 noise... :D
