From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
The kingswood is a large forest that lies across the Blackwater Rush from King's Landing. It is in the southern Crownlands and the northern Stormlands and is traversed by the kingsroad. Originating from a narrow lake in the forest, the Wendwater is the largest river in the kingswood. Felwood is located in the southern outskirts of the forest.
The kingswood contains a private hunting area for the King of Westeros. However, some smallfolk live in the forest. Although it is rainy, the region is fertile enough.
The kingswood was the hideout of an infamous band of outlaws, the Kingswood Brotherhood.
King Robert Baratheon was hunting in the kingswood when Queen Cersei Lannister gave birth to Prince Joffrey Baratheon.
A Game of Thrones
King Robert Baratheon is hunting in the kingswood when he is mortally wounded by a boar.
A Clash of Kings
Tyrion Lannister sends expert woodsmen and the mountain clansmen who had accompanied him to King's Landing to the kingswood in preparation for Stannis Baratheon's imminent arrival. There they prey on Stannis's baggage train and harry his flanks. Leading Stannis's vanguard, Ser Guyard Morrigen burns part of the kingswood to smoke out the clansmen; Sansa Stark can see the fire and smoke from the Red Keep.
