Meisel Woods Conservation Area is a conservation area near Sharbot Lake.

This 130-acre property near the Village of Crow Lake surrounds a 60-acre, headwaters lake known as Beaver or Bass Lake and includes additional water frontage on Crow Lake. The property was generously donated to the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation by John Meisel in 2000.

The Sandi Slater Memorial Walk is a central feature of this conservation area. The trail is a stunning, 5km walk through forest, rocks, over streams and hills and boasts a number of lookouts, and benches that offer gorgeous views of Bass Lake and the surrounding area. The trail was established by Joe Slater in memory of his wife Sandi. It is the product of scores of generous donations and countless hours of volunteer labor.
