  • Beautiful place just to watch the Sun set
  • Don't leave your valuables in your car. As I was arriving Sunday evening, there was an officer assisting a family because their car had been broken into. Window was shattered. Not even sure if anything was taken really. Some locals that live in the area said their cars have also been broken into. Other than that this place is nice! Especially for making photographs
  • I've always been a huge fan of dutton island but I went out paddleboarding for an hour yesterday only to come back to my passenger window smashed. I went back the next day and saw more broken glass in another parking area there. It's obvious I wasn't the only one. Take all valuables with you when exploring there. I'll be leaving my car unlocked if I go back.
  • Spent the day painting with First Coast Plein Air Painters. The Dutton Island Preserve was beautiful. Wonderful experience to see the Florida's wild life up close. On the second day painting our painting group had more trouble because it was loaded with insects in the marshes. None of our insect repellent seemed to be working. You are best to go on a day when there is a breeze blowing.
  • Great fishing. Nice trails.
