The Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park is a small 403 ha park about 12 km southeast of Tanunda in South Australia. It lies in the range overlooking the Barossa Valley, and is named after the 600 metre high Kaiserstuhl (literally "emperor's chair") or Patpoori in an immediately adjacent section of the Mount Crawford Forest.

The mountain itself was named by geologist Joseph Menge after the Kaiserstuhl mountain range near Freiburg in southwestern Germany, a famous winegrowing region. It is dual-named with the Aboriginal name Patpoori. The German name was changed to Mount Kitchener in 1918 but has been changed back.
