|“||“A short stay in Rosewood is pleasant, but a long stay? Well the inmates of the famous Knox Penitentiary will tell you: that it's not so fun!
Ideally situated geographically for ease of access, Rosewood is a community hub for administration and community services as well as a leading incarceration center. The county courthouse, a recently refurbished fire department and a lively law enforcement facility make this one of the most important towns in the area! Come visit today!”
|— In-game description|
Rosewood is a town in 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, KY or Fallas Lake, KY, it does not appear to have a real-world counterpart. It's located in the southwest area of the map.
Rosewood has the lowest zombie population for any of the spawn towns, making it an ideal town to start in for new players. Some points of interest in Rosewood are the Rosewood Fire Department, a large police station, a small clinic, a supermarket, as well as the county courthouse. Rosewood also features a sizeable residential area, making it a great place to set up a base.
Zombies are more concentrated in downtown Rosewood, with few zombies in the residential areas. A school located in the eastern part of town can be a great location to visit when a player spawns in, with a small health room, books, and a good chance to find a backpack. The police and fire station are located next to each other in the western part of Rosewood. They have a lower number of zombies compared to downtown, and usually contain high tier weapons such as Axes, as well as the police station having a large number of lockers that spawn good gear.
In a twist of irony, just a short drive away from Rosewood to its northwest is the Kentucky State Prison, one of the most dangerous locations in the game with a insanely high zombie population. Players will have to fight hundreds of zombies if they choose to take it on. The prison has a decently stocked armory on the second floor, though this is usually not worth the resources that would need to be expended to clear it. Another tactic would be to use a police car (commonly found at the Rosewood police station), activate its sirens to lure all the zombies out of the prison, and then sneak inside.
