I'm trying to find some good spots to camp alone, or maybe with 1, or 2 others that I can reach via transit, my bike, and by foot. No car. I'm in Seattle. Legit spots are preferred of course.

I am willing to put 4+ hours transit time in. I have found some options but I'm looking for thoughts from you.
Nice views, hikes, natural vibes are a plus. Tent camping for 3 nights at most, probably 2.

Any ideas/recommendations?
Thanks...

I take it you live in SEA and are looking for camping sites within a transit commute. (Not that you are traveling to SEA and want to camp within 4 hrs... my first impression)

Manchester SP (port orchard) Manchester State Park, a Washington State Park near Bainbridge Islan, Bothell, Bremerton, Brier, Burien
San Juans, (lot of options)

Look to islands near SEA also, go down to Shilshole and get a 'ride-out' to a remote island (and hope they come back to fetch you...)

Washington State Parks - StateParks.com
Free Campgrounds for RVs

If you have 4 hrs I would definately look into spots in BC, including Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands, as well as Mainland. BC camping is superb.

You could check into seeing if Greyhound would stop for you at Snoqualmie Pass on route to Ellensburg. Several lakes are within reach.
