I love Lake Tulloch !!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Tulloch

When I was about 10 years old, my parents asked me if I wanted to stay in the Lake Tulloch Area forever, and I replied, "I want to watch this place grow". Over the past 22 years, I have watched Copperopolis more than quadruple  in size, yet it has kept it's small town feel. After high school, I moved to Illinois to attend college, but I knew that I would return to Lake Tulloch after graduation. Aaron Stafford April Shaver SIU Graduation

The day after graduation, I was back home in Copperopolis studying to get my real estate license, which I had planned to do all along. I was lucky enough to get April, to come along.

I could not think of a better place to raise a family. My two oldest daughters learned to water ski before they were three. Addison sking on Lake Tulloch

Some of the teachers that I had, still teach at Copperopolis Elementary and Bret Harte Union High School. I think that it is cool, but it really makes the teachers feel old. I have walked my daughters to class everyday (with a few exceptions) since they each started in Kindergarten. It is nice to go back, because I was really sad when I moved up to high school in Angels Camp. I think that the school is really special, because the teachers are genuine and they love to teach.

I also like the weather. In Illinois, I couldn't stand the weather, though I must admit that pring and fall were really nice. In Copper, we basically have two seasons, Summer and Winter. The transition periods betewwn the seasons seem to last about 2-3 weeks. Summers are dry and hot and the winters are pretty mild. It doesn't snow, but there is an exception to every rule...Snow in Copperopolis March 11, 2006

I really like the location of the area. Since we are pretty much located in the middle of California, it is only about 1.5 hours to the airports in Sacramento, San Fran, or even Oakland or San Jose. You can compare rates for sure. The drive to Disneyland, isn't too bad, especially when you take J-59 to Merced. I think it is a pretty easy 6 hours, I make it normally at night, so I don't have to stop too many times for the kids.The Stafford Princesses at Disneyland

Lake Tulloch is actually really close to great camping at Lake Alpine, Pinecrest, and the best of all, Yosemite. I had actually never been to Yosemite until last year. Pretty sad. It is only about 80 miles to the gate, and I had never been there. I really like Lake Tulloch, but if I could live in Yosemite, I would. It is amazing, and it your never have been there, you should get in your car and go NOW!Aaron and April Stafford at Yosemite


I love the Lake Tulloch-Copperopolis Area, and if it sounds great to you, I would be happy to show you around.

     Wow that area sounds fantastic....  I recently moved to a lake side town in North Carolina, from the busy metropolis of Baltimore/DC.  I love the lake life (even though I grew up right next to the water)!  I will have to put Lake Tulloch on my places to one day visit list.
