The Sespe Creek is a 61 mile long stream in Ventura County that starts in the eastern Sierra Madre Mountains and empties into the Santa Clara River in Fillmore. Thirty one miles of the Sespe Creek has been designated as a National Wild and Scenic River and National Scenic Waterway. It is one of the only natural rivers in Southern California. The name of the Sespe Creek is derived from the former Chumash Indian village of Cepsey which once existed adjacent to the stream. The Sespe Creek watershed is famous for the 53,000 acre Sespe Condor Sanctuary created in 1947 which protects the habitat of the California Condor which is an endangered species.
