Ventucopa is an unincorporated community in the upper Cuyama Valley of Santa Barbara County, California. It lies on State Route 33 near the eastern bank of the seasonally-dry Cuyama River, about 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Cuyama. Because of how the county borders were drawn in relation to the valley and the Cuyama River, the community is essentially isolated from the rest of Santa Barbara County; travel to other communities in the county requires crossing through either Ventura County or San Luis Obispo County. The name is a portmanteau of the cities of Ventura and Maricopa, which are located along Highway 33 to the south and north, respectively. The ZIP Code is 93252, and the community is inside area code 661.
