Can I copy a repo with a simple 'cp -r'?

I want to copy (and not move) an existing repo to another directory on a
Linux system so I can execute some test procedures on this "test" copy
without disturbing the original, production one.

Can I do this with a simple 'cp -r'? Does it depend if any other
transactions are currently executing at the time of the recursive
copy...and/or anything else? Or do I need to execute a dump/load procedure?

This assumes that I'm using a consistent Subversion software (client and
server) revision for all procedures.
