The Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park is a protected area located in the Australian state of South Australia in the suburb of Flaxman Valley about 80 kilometres (50 mi) north-east of the state capital of Adelaide and about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south-east of the town of Tanunda.

The conservation park consists of land in sections 531, 623, 730, 732, 733, 736, 737, 844, 859, 860, 861 and 862 in the cadastral unit of the Hundred of Moorooroo and which is an area bounded in the east by a sealed road, Tanunda Creek Road. The Heysen Trail, the long distance walking trail, passes along the west side of the conservation park.

It was proclaimed under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 on 3 May 1979 for the above-mentioned parcels of land with exception to sections 859, 860, 861 and 862 which were added by proclamation on 3 December 1987. It is named after a hill called Kaiserstuhl which is located to its immediate west in the suburb of Pewsey Vale. As of 2016, it covered an area of 4.35 square kilometres (1.68 sq mi).

The conservation park is classified as an IUCN Category III protected area. In 1980, it was listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate.
