Once the second largest national producer of copper, 19 million pounds in the civil war era. Copperopolis is now a quiet foothill town, at an elevation of 997 ft. “Copper” is where you will find one of the top ten PGA golf courses in Northern California, Saddle Creek. Just outside of town is Lake Tulloch with 55 miles of shoreline and the Lake Tulloch Resort. Copperopolis is the perfect place stay while you enjoy boating and water sports. Copperopolis has a variety of shops and dining destinations in the town square with more to come.
One of the most charming festivals in Copperopolis is the summer concert series which features talented, local bands with a variety of musical styles. The summer festival is free to the public, casual and fun. When you combine the magic of Christmas with the beauty of Copperopolis Town Square’s classical architecture, horse-drawn carriage rides, carolers and live music, and treats, you have the lovely, Copperopolis Old Fashioned Holiday and Tree Lighting. You can even get a jump on your holiday shopping, with the square’s boutique shops offering special deals and staying open late.
