Forks, Washington, also known as the "logging capital of the world", is the location Stephenie Meyer chose as the primary setting for her Twilight series. It's small town with a small population, located in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington and is one of the rainiest places in the United States.
The fictional Chief of Police is Charlie Swan. There is a high school called Forks High School, a small public library, and a number of stores, including Newton's Olympic Outfitters, which is run by the Newton family and where Bella Swan was at one time an employee. A restaurant known as The Lodge is a favorite of Charlie Swan's. Forks also has a hospital, Forks Hospital, where Carlisle Cullen works.
