Top 5 Things To Do in Copperopolis

 As a 27 year resident of Copperopolis, I have seen a lot change over the years. As we have grown, the amount of activities have grown for the area and here are my Top 5.  


#5 Hot Copper Car Show

 Sponsored by Lake Tulloch Lions Club, the Hot Copper Car Show is now held in the Copperopolis Town Square. The car show, now in it’s 11th year has grown every year and now features more than 200 custom and classic cars from all over the state. Pictures from last years show can be seen at . Last year, the event featured a fun day of family entertainment including a vintage auto and motorcycle show, mechanical bull riding, ice cream eating competition, live music, silent auction, raffles, poker walk through local business establishments and more. The show is generally held in May and all proceeds benefit local charitable work, local food bank and local high school scholarships. 


#4 Horseback Riding with Copper Valley Trail Company

Generally, The Copperopolis Town Square features live music at most of their events. The best concerts are generally held in September for the “Copper Concert” series. Last year, was the best line up yet, featuring Caravanserai, Joel the Band, Chains Required and local favorite, Josh Pfeiffer. Held on the gazebo in the park, there is plenty of seating and great views of the bands. The streets of Town Square are blocked off during these events so it is safe for families with children.        


#2 Golfing at Saddle Creek     

The 14th at Saddle Creek

  Saddle Creek Resort is truly a golf resort for players and couples of all levels. The golf resort features 18 scenic holes and is ranked 8th by Golf Week Magazine for Best Public Access Courses in California. While Copperopolis is generally know for Lake Tulloch, Saddle Creek has put Copperopolis on the map for avid golfers. Information about homes and homesites is also available on my website at Saddle Creek Resales. Call (209) 785- 7415 for tee times.     



#1 Lake Tulloch


Lake Tulloch is known mainly for it’s waterfront homes. Since most lakes are state owned, lakefront living is a true rarity in California. Lake Tulloch is also features an inlet and outlet dam so lake levels are controlled and maintained. Each day the lake fluctuates 1-3 feet as the dams release water to generate power, which in turn, keeps the lake fresh. For a more details about the lake click here. Lake Tulloch is great for anything that you could want to do on a lake. Waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, wakesurfing, tubing, jetskiing, fishing, paddleboating, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, pontoon boating, floating, lounging, you name it. If it can be done on a lake, it can be done at Lake Tulloch (except parasailing…..big power lines!). You can do all of this from your own privately owned dock. For more information about homes at Lake Tulloch, please visit my website at Lake Tulloch Waterfronts or call me at (209) 840-1432.
