Forks

The Forks Chamber of Commerce has described their west end outpost this way: “Forks, Washington, USA, is located in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula, between the Olympic mountains and the Pacific Ocean beaches. Forks and the surrounding area provide you with an impressive array of recreational options as you explore the Northwest corner of the Pacific Northwest.

This 2,000 square mile area is bordered on the north and west by over 100 miles of saltwater shores, and to the south and east by alpine meadows and rain forest valleys. Over 200 miles of wild rivers crisscross the region, providing healthy runs of native salmon and steelhead. Experience world class attractions such as the Olympic National Park, Rialto Beach, the Hoh Rain Forest, Kalaloch Beach, Lake Ozette, Cape Flattery and the Northwest Coast, Lake Crescent, Sol Duc Falls and our many scenic rivers and mountain trails.

Whether you’re here for a week, or the weekend, or are considering relocating to a beautiful setting with an emphasis on community and quality of life, we look forward to meeting you.”

Everyone on the Peninsula knows that Forks is the Twilight town, with access to the Hoh rainforest, dramatic beaches, fishing, boating, surfing, and hiking. Forks also has excellent access to the west side of Olympic National Park.
