Carver Cafe - Damascus, OR

Main article: The Lodge

The Carver Cafe: 16471 SE Highway 224, Damascus, Oregon

The Carver Cafe was used as the local casual dining restaurant in Forks, and plays the part of The Lodge as mentioned in the books. According to their website: It has pretty much always been a restaurant since opening in the late 50’s. It was built by a husband and wife who lived in the house that is still behind the café. He was injured in a logging accident and as a result of that, the family was forced to find a different income. So, the café was just that and ran by his wife. It’s always been some kind of restaurant but a lot of locals talk about their memories of it as a donut shop.[1]

The View Point Inn is just 22 miles from downtown Portland, Oregon, near Crown Point, nestled high on a one acre bluff, with a panoramic view of the entire Columbia River Gorge, the city lights of Portland, and Vancouver. This is where the prom scenes were filmed for Twilight. According to their website: This 1924 world class boutique hotel and fine dining restaurant serves lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The Inn has celebrated Presidents, Hollywood Motion Picture Stars and European Royalty and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Available for banquets, private parties, weddings and special events.[2]

Wauna Federal Credit Union (aka: Forks Police Station)

Vernonia, Oregon[4]

Much of the filming of "Forks, WA" was actually done in Vernonia, OR. The picture shown here is the Google® maps street view of the Wauna Federal Credit Union building in Vernonia, which was used as the Forks Police Station during filming. Clearly visible in this view are two additional distinctive landmarks, aside from the building itself, which are seen in the movie Twilight when Edward and Bella are returning to town from Port Angeles. The telephone pole, and the side street that Edward turns onto before pulling into the police station at Bella's request. The house in "Forks" where Bella lives with her father Charlie is about 20 miles east of Vernonia by the Washington border in Saint Helens, at 184 South 6th Street.

Forks High School was actually a combination of two different schools. Kalama High School in Kalama, WA was used for the exterior shots of the school - such as the pivotal parking lot scene in which Edward first shows his superhuman speed and strength.[4] The cafeteria scenes were shot at Madison High School in Portland, OR, which was also a location used for Gus Van Sant's 2007 independent film "Paranoid Park." [5]

The Oregon City Mill (aka: Grisham Mill)

Located about 15 miles south of Portland, Oregon on the Willamette River, this was the filming location for the scene in Twilight where James' Coven attack and kill a security guard at Grisham Mill. It is also notable that William Friedkin’s "The Hunted" was filmed here as well.[4]

Indian Beach, Ecola State Park, Oregon - located off Hwy 101, two miles north of Cannon Beach, Oregon

This is the location used as the surfing spot for the high school kids of Forks. The picture shown is quite recognizable as the location used in Twilight where Jacob tells Bella the Quileute legends involving their wolf origins and the "cold ones". This location was also used in the filming of Steven Spielberg’s "1941" and "The Goonies," as well as the surfing movie "Point Break".[4]

Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park, BC

Long Beach is located in Pacific Rim National Park , British Columbia.

For the movies after Twilight, the filming location for LaPush beach was moved up the coast to Vancouver Island. This is the place where Bella says to Jacob "so you're a werewolf" in New Moon. Jacob and Bella walk through the outcrops at Incinerator Rock to Long Beach. This a top beach for surfers in Canada due in part to large and consistent waves.

Other locations were used around the park situated between the scenic towns of Tofino and Ucluelet. Members of the Quileute tribe play soccer on a beach in Breaking Dawn Part 1. This is the scene where Jacob, Leah, Embry and Seth discuss the pros and cons of imprinting and of being an Alpha.

  • The "Thunderbird and Whale" book store, where Bella buys her vampire research material, is actually a private office building at 260 South 2nd Street.[4]
  • Behind the bookstore site is the alleyway where Edward swoops in to rescue Bella from her would-be attackers, on 1st Street.[4]
  • The "Bloated Toad" Italian Restaurant, where Edward opens up to Bella, is actually a construction company at 333 South 1st Street.[4]

Coquitlam, British Columbia (aka: LaPush, Washington)

Black residence

Coquitlam, BC

The scenes with Jacob and Billy Black's residence were filmed in Coquitlam, a suburb of Vancouver, BC. The private residence is in clear view from the street and it's on a corner lot located at Victoria Drive, Gilleys Trail and Quarry Road. The house was painted red to match the colour in the book prior to filming.

A little further along the road is Minnekhada Regional Park . A number of the outdoor scenes from Eclipse were filmed here.

The Breaking Dawn Part 1 honeymoon scenes depicting Rio de Janeiro were really filmed on location in Rio de Janeiro. The establishing shots include footage of the landmark Cristo Redentor statue (Corcovado) and the Carioca Aqueduct (Arcos da Lapa). Edward and Bella hop out of their taxi to dance at a street party at 77 Avenida Mem de Sá and Rua do Lavrádio, located just down the street from the aqueduct. Edward's motorboat is shown in an aerial view speeding off the shore of Leblon and Ipanema Beach. A brief shot of Rio de Janeiro also appears in New Moon when Edward phones Bella's house. The filming location for Isle Esme is approximately 200km west of Rio de Janeiro in Paraty, Brazil.
