I'm really in the middle about this. I like how it worked out, because I really wanted him to still be a part of Bella's life and it made the perfect happy ending what it was. I also feel he would have accepted whatever crazy situation because he wanted Bella to still be a part of his life and was afraid of losing her. However, I would have liked him to fight back a little bit before the acceptance. Particularly, when she was "sick" and couldn't see her, I felt like Charlie would have insisted on seeing her anyway, driven to the Cullen's house, etc. I think his police experience and stubborness would have shown through here. I get that he knew something was up all along (as Edward indicates in Eclipse) and chose to ignore it- I think a lot of parents do that- but I think it got to the point where I was a little disappointed in Charlie's character. After Jacob's phasing, I was really torn on Charlie's reaction as part of me thought Charlie would have demanded at least some answers, but I guess once he got to the Cullens' he knew he was in way over his head and maybe it was too much for him to fully grasp. I always thought of Charlie in relation to my own father, and I don't think I would mind my father to be a little more protective under the circumstances.
