Upcoming Events

Spring Cleanup – April 20, 2019

Each spring volunteers gather at the park to get the park ready for the upcoming season.  We open up the caretaker’s cabin, take the storm covers off the windows, rake some leaves, redistribute the picnic tables, and generally spruce the place up (sometimes literally ‘sprucing it up’ by planting a few trees).  This year’s spring cleanup will be the morning of Saturday, April 20, beginning around 9:00.  If there are any questions please use the ‘contact’ page on this website.

Spring Fest, 2019′

Our fifth annual Spring Fest will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Events will include the local fire department firefighting competition, fishing derby sponsored by Trout Unlimited, the Boat Float contest for the kids, chicken barbecue by the local Cub Scouts, food and craft vendors, and musical entertainment throughout the day.  Camping rates at the park will be at the reduced rate of $5 for tents and $10 for RV sites throughout the weekend.

See below for a short description of the 2018 Spring Fest event.  Details on this year’s event will be posted here as they develop.

Spring Fest, 2018

The Copes Corners Park Committee and the Town of Butternuts are proud to say that the fourth annual Spring Fest held in early May was a real success for the community.  The good weather brought out a steady stream of people and attendance was higher than ever for the all-day event.  Please see below for a few photos.
