Cold camping getaway!

We just need some peace and quiet. Looking for a great spot to do some early-season camping this weekend near Seattle, WA. Suggestions?

We're stressed out and need some quiet time in front of a fire. Yes, we realize it'll be cold, that's okay.
Initially I was thinking somewhere around the hood canal, but I was only able to find one spot that I know will be open (Brown Creek campground between Shelton and Hoodsport - with a whooping 6 sites). Umm, seriously, there has to be more than that around. And, I'm sure there is, but dang, I've pretty much searched my ass off and haven't found much.
1. Preferably within two hours from Seattle by car.
2. Lower elevation (no snow please!)
3. Nice tree coverage for privacy and to help us get out of the wind.
4. Quiet, no mega-campsites with RVs/kids, no parks with big day-use areas.
Undeveloped/primitive campsites are fine. If firewood collecting is permitted that's a plus.
Please recommend something that you KNOW is open (tons of stuff is still closed from flood damage) and that you KNOW will be open this early in the season (Mar. 22-24).
If you know of a really great year-round spot that doesn't quite meet all my criteria, lets hear it anyway.
Thanks AskMe, I really appreciate the help.
