Yes, a little boy's family is posting that he bitten at the bouy by a copperhead, and the pictures do clearly show fang marks. Sounds like they were swimming near a rocky area of shore.

Does anyone know if a den was actually found?

people should be warned to stay out of the rocky areas and stay on the sand.

An official statement has now been posted:

"The Resource Manager's Office has received many phone calls today regarding a possible copperhead nest near the beach area. A young boy was bitten over the weekend by a snake of unknown species but is recovering. Rangers have searched the area and have been unable to find a nest or a single snake. Please use caution when visiting the lake and give animals their space. They will try to stay away from you and only attack when cornered or threatened."
