Copeville is a town and a locality in the Australian state of South Australia.[1]

It was established as a town on the Waikerie railway line, but the line has closed and the town has declined.

The 2016 Australian census which was conducted in August 2016 reports that Copeville had a population of 34 people.[2]

Copeville is located within the federal division of Barker, the state electoral district of Hammond and the local government area of the District Council of Karoonda East Murray.[7][1][6]
