Rose-Iceland is a 7.5 hectare island in Narragansett Bay off Newport, Rhode Island, USA. The island is supposedly called "Rose Island" because at low tide it looks like a rose[1] The island can only be reached by ferry. It and its beacon are run by the Rose Island Charitable Foundation.

Conockonoquit" was the Indian name of the rose island. Strongholds were built on the island during the US Revolution. The US administration began building Hamilton on Rose Island in 1798, but the fortress was never finished.

LocationCharlestown, Indiana, U.S. Rose Island is an deserted themepark located near Charlestown, Indiana, on a peninsular (the "Devil's Backbone") designed by Fourteen Mile Creek, which flows into the Ohio River. This was a recreation area known as Fern Grove in the 1880' and was mainly used as a sanctuary camps. It flourished as Fern Grove during picnic parties and families trips.

As a result, the Rose Island area became part of the ammunition factory of the Indiana Army. Once the facility was shut down, the property was transferred to the new Charlestown State Parc. The area where the Rose Island was situated is not accessible, but the pedestrian bridge that connects the penninsula to the coast is preserved and can be seen from one of the park's itineraries.
