Things To Do
While Copperopolis has its roots firmly planted in the past, this town is looking forward to a bright future. The new Copperopolis Town Square was built to enhance the small town ambiance. The variety of the landscape matches the diversity of its inhabitants. Tucked away among the rolling hills covered with oaks the surrounding area looks much as it did when the copper miners worked in the mines. In this special haven the beautiful setting, relaxed way of life and close proximity to big city amenities makes this a top spot for residents and visitors alike.
Copperopolis offers a relaxed quality of life in an outdoor playground. A variety of shops, restaurants, and salons keep the customers returning to the square. An old fashioned Ice Cream Parlor is a favorite too. Events include the Chili Cook-off, September Concerts, Summerfest, Dog Days, Holiday Celebrations and more! Located in the heart of the Gold Country Foothills, Copperopolis has a mild four-season climate, friendly people, and undeniable charm. The residents enjoy unlimited outdoor recreation, well planned residential areas, historic buildings and small town atmosphere.
On the fun side, Lake Tulloch offers residents plenty of opportunities to partake in water sports in a sunny climate. Surrounded by volcanic bluffs and breathtaking Table Top Mountain, Lake Tulloch’s waters are perfect for boaters, swimmers, and anglers alike. Lake communities grew after the development of the dam in the late 50’s. Since that time it has been a popular spot to vacation for visitors from the nearby bay area. Lake Tulloch can produce some fabulous fishing for big trophy trout and bass. Its shoreline of 55 miles and fingers allow gentle waters for fishing and swimming. The Stanislaus River feeds the lake with pristine snow melt from Lake Melones to the east. Why not try a leisurely sunset cruise up the nearly five-mile river with your friends? Our concierge can arrange it for you.
The spirit of volunteerism is evident through the thousands of hours spent on the annual projects. Volunteers manage the local library, and the newly formed Copperopolis Parks and Recreation organization promises the creation of beautiful public parks, nature preserves, trails, and facilities where members of any and all of the neighborhoods can participate in sports or other recreational programs and provide educational, cultural and enriching activities/classes for all ages. The local volunteer fire department assists the Copperopolis Fire Department in their duties and finds time to put on a Melodrama, held in the historic Armory that is a favorite amongst the residents. Life in this small town means being involved with the community.
Residents and visitors enjoy hiking, walking, horseback riding, fishing, gold panning and a small town flavor that appeals to young families, vacationers and retirees. Once you meet the people you will want to become part of the community. Whether exploring the surrounding nature, checking out the new developments or recreating on the lake this pleasant community has a lot to offer anyone looking for the good life.
