— In-game description

Rosewood is a small town in southern Knox Country. The town was home to many of the wealthy citizens of Knox Country. In contrast to some of the other in-game towns, such as Muldraugh or Fallas Lake, it does not appear to have a real-world counterpart.


Rosewood is a small town located in the southern area of Knox Country, and has the lowest zombie population of the four spawn towns. However, it has far less loot than Riverside, with a much smaller shopping district. This is contrasted by a large amount of wealthy two-story houses that almost always have a detached garage. It can be quite a drive from other towns, with only Muldraugh and March Ridge being close by. This makes Rosewood harder to survive in than Riverside, but much easier than Muldraugh or West Point.

Zombies are mostly concentrated on the main street and forest surrounding the town. The residential areas have less zombies, and have many high fences to jump over if being chased. They also prevent zombies from easily moving between main street on the residential block.

Some high-value locations in Rosewood include the Rosewood Fire Department, the police station across the street from said fire station, the gated community, and a Book Naked franchise.


Rosewood can generally be divided into three distinct districts.

Main street

The main street is a north-south road that is where most of the businesses are located, and has the highest number of zombies. it takes up the western section of town, and connects to an east-west four lane highway that intersects with Dixie Highway. Some high value looting areas in this district include a grocery store, the Book Naked franchise, and Rosewood Medical. Most of the businesses on this road also have apartments above them that can be accessed via two staircases that connect to the outside via black doors with glass panels.


The suburbs take up the eastern part of town, and are separated from the main street by a tall fence. All the houses are large, two story houses with detached garages. This, combined with the low zombie count, makes the suburbs of Rosewood one of the safest places in Knox Country. The garages contain plenty of weapons and vehicle parts, and the houses contain large amounts of food. Any of the houses that spawn as boarded up survivor homes can be considered high-value targets, even more so than normal due to the large amount of containers that can spawn the high-value loot associated with survivor homes. There is also a school that contains lots of skill books and a good chance to find a school bag.


The outskirts of Rosewood can be deceptively dangerous. There are a large number of zombies in the forest nearby, and they will often migrate out of the forests into the town itself, catching survivors off guard. Besides the forest, the outskirts consist of various farmlands and small rural farmsteads. To the west of town, there is the Kentucky State Prison, considered by many to be the most dangerous area in all of Knox Country. Other notable locations in the outskirts are the produce warehouses and the farmer's market.


Many stores and restaurants in Rosewood are in dual-use buildings, with apartments above the stores. These apartments are not listed here.

  • Rosewood does not have a real-world analogue.
  • The helicopter event can be extremely dangerous in Rosewood. The town is extremely small, and when combined with the large amount of zombies in the surrounding forest, getting spotted by the helicopter in Rosewood is a death sentence if caught by surprise. The Automated Emergency Broadcast System can be used to predict when the helicopter will arrive.
  • Rosewood can be considered one of the best cities to survive in. The reasons for this being the only spawn town with a fire station, a smaller amount of zombies, and good base locations.
  • Rosewood is the closest town to the secret military base, hidden in the woods a little West of Rosewood.
