About Us

The Forks Chamber of Commerce is a voice and advocate for the business community and other organizations of the West End of the Olympic Peninsula. The chamber is the primary promoter of tourism in our area. In addition to maintaining this website, our activities include operating the year-round Visitor Information Center in Forks; creating many guides for lodging, shopping, fishing, activities and dining; and sponsoring the free Logging and Mill Tours, that run May through September.

The Forks Chamber of Commerce is honored to represent businesses in this area, as well as businesses in other parts of Washington and the United States.  We are proud to partner with the City of Forks in many endeavors and stand by the laws of the City of Forks, as well as the State of Washington.

We look forward to our continued productive relationship with the City of Forks and the businesses that we represent.
