You will be the only campers. Set up your tent or park your camper in the meadow with a view of the Olympic Mountains. The meadow feels secluded thanks to the surrounding blackberry thickets (eat blackberries if you visit in late summer). The meadow is sunny most of the time, but there are spots you can choose that get shade in the morning or afternoon. There is plenty of space to find a good spot!
Tent campers are welcome to drive your vehicle to your campsite while you unload and make camp, then keep it out of sight in the parking area. There's a wooden platform for hanging out and a firepit (except during a fire ban). If you bring a hammock, there's a pretty area to hang it. The meadow is set back from a low traffic road, so it's quiet and peaceful here for the most part - keep in mind that this isn't the wilderness, so expect the temporary sounds of lawnmowers, cars, kids playing, dogs barking, and other elements of suburbia.
It's a flat 1.6 miles to Washington Street, downtown, so biking and walking to restaurants or grocery stores is easy. Biking around town is awesome since it's so flat (very slightly uphill into town, so coming back is easier). The Olympic Discovery Trail is about a mile away, so this may be a good camping spot if you're traveling the trail (olympicdiscoverytrail.org). Railroad Bridge Park at the Dungeness River is 2.3 miles away.
Birds love it here. Enjoy the coveys of quail who travel around chittering and chattering. Hawks and Bald Eagles regularly fly overhead. Beautiful Steller's Jays visit often. Ducks whir by on their way to a nearby pond. Hummingbirds dwell in the blackberry thickets and sometimes shoot up high then dive bomb. And many seagulls pass overhead as they commute between the Burger King parking lot and the beaches.
My daughter and I live on-site. We come and go, do yardwork, play outside, but we'll mind our own business near our house during your visit. :)

The land where you will stay is in suburbia, but looks like a little wild enclave.
The Dungeness River has many swimming holes. Know that it's cold all year long (snow melt)!
Lots of farms around, especially lavender farms.
