Copper is a former community in Jackson County, Oregon, United States. Copper was located about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the Oregon–California border, near the mouth of Carberry Creek. Copper was named for the copper mining in the region, including at the Blue Ledge mine just over the state line in California. The town had a post office from 1924 until 1932.
The townsite was inundated in 1980 when Applegate Lake was formed by damming the Applegate River.
