It doesn't look like a copperhead. They have white lips. Also, this snake's pupils are round, and the head shape is wrong. I'm going to say it's a water snake of some sort. There are five copperhead species in North America: the Northern copperhead, Southern copperhead, Osage copperhead, broad-banded copperhead, and Trans-Pecos copperhead. Info from: [link] Of these, only the Northern copperhead is found in Pennsylvania.

A quick Google search could tell you whether or not you're right, but mistakes do happen. :) I also included the others in case you or anyone one else wanted to check them out. Sorry if I came off rude. I just really love snakes, I love to share information on them. Sometimes I guess I share too much. XD
