Location of the mouth of the Duckabush River in Washington

The Duckabush River is located in the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, United States. It rises near Mount Duckabush in the Olympic Mountains within the Olympic National Park and drains to Hood Canal, an arm of Puget Sound.

The name Duckabush comes from the Indian word do-hi-a-boos, meaning "reddish face", referring to the reddish bluffs in the area.[2]
