Ditto Landing is a picturesque marina located on the beautiful Tennessee River. There are walking trails, a campground, inlets for fishing, etc. It is a beautiful place to picnic or to sit and watch boats go by. There is no cost to enter and fishing is free.
As a side note, Andrew Jackson, John Coffee, and Davy Crockett sent troops from here by ferry during the War of 1812!

Unlike most cities in America for some reason when Huntsville developed they did it OFF the river!? Now with TVA regulations I dont think much can be done on the river so all we have is Ditto Landing. Basically all you get is a boat dock, a small, poorly kept campground that isnt even near the water and a fairly nice pavillion that sits on the hill and has a nice view of the river and bridge. But that is about it. There is so much promise here if there were just some more reasons to come by, a restaurant overlooking the water would be great!

I have been at Ditto Landing for 30+ years as a boat owner and it has constantly improved. It is currently in a major improvement effort. There is a beautiful view of sunsets from Ditto and the South Huntsville Greenway runs through Ditto and along the river. There are benches you can sit and just watch the lazy river flow. Plenty of green grass to spread out and have a picnic or fly a kite. Great place to bring most backyard hobbies (RC toys, kites, frisbee, baseball, etc.) They have several mowed recreation areas available as well as pavilions that can be rented for events. There are areas to go fishing as well as a new edition of a paddle board rental company (don't know anymore than that.) They have a "Ship's Store" that sells ice cream, cokes, and other beverages as well as ice for your cooler. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with requests. Great place to go on a sunny afternoon.

We actually went to a wedding in the area not too long ago. The area is still beautiful. There are boat ramps and lots of fishing. You can swim in certain areas (or not). Not too far from what used to be the Huntsville Speedway (does that place still exist?).

This is about the campground.
Sigh. What used to be a lovely, family-friendly, clean RV campground is now a sad, dirty, unkempt campground in a state of gross negligence and disrepair. Shame on Huntsville and Madison County for allowing this to happen.
There are two campground areas: one in shade and one not. The campground with shade is the old, original campground with mature shade trees and, unfortunately now, an asphalt road replete with potholes, sections missing, and large portions of standing water and/or mud. The site pads are asphalt pads (not concrete, as advertised) and are crumbling, cracked, decaying relics, lined with wet, sticky mud that lingers (in the case of our site) at least five days after the last rain. There is no maintenance in evidence as limbs, leaves, trash, and other debris cover these site pads, in some cases, nearly obscuring them.
Our site is not alone in the amount of old and recent trash that inhabits it. On our arrival, we found: candy wrappers (new and worn), hair paraphernalia, a sandal, random vehicle parts (metal pipes, plastic pieces), cigars, beer cans (old and recent), and many other indicators that there is no basic clean-up done by maintenance staff. There are no dog disposal stations in this campground. The concrete picnic tables are completely falling apart –by that, I mean, benches are cracked completely in two or fallen over entirely, huge chunks have fallen off sections, etc. There are aluminum picnic tables in many campsites to replace the concrete tables but they are seemingly randomly set adjacent to the old, decayed tables. Why have the deteriorated and non-functional tables not been removed? The same goes for the campsite grills: these ancient iron grills are in total disrepair and function. The “grill” on our campsite is sitting on the ground, the pole completely missing. It is completely non-functional. On walking through the campground, I see almost all the grills in the same state: either the grill is completely gone and there is a random post or a grill is sitting on the ground. Fire rings are also random and, obviously, not maintained.
The road into this campground has so many deep potholes at the entrance, none dried out during the first five non-rainy days of our visit. There is not a traditional “dump station” here, but a questionable pump, standing in who-knows-what kind of water, with no instructions posted. There is a hose with a hook-up feature lying in the murky water surrounding this station and a broken plastic cover that, when pulled off, reveals some sort of pump. We found a switch to turn this on and, after we hooked the nozzle-like hose to our drain, switched it on. We are experienced campers and this is an experience we hope never to repeat. Basically, this was really disgusting.
Rather than repeat the questionable pump (not dump…) station experience, we decided to try to change our campsite to one in the “non-shaded” section, or, the new section of Ditto Landing, where there are sewer hook-ups. On asking at the campground office, we found out we could not change sites as the staff person could not figure out how to do it on her computer. She told us there was nothing available. We went online and found that, indeed, there was a campsite available for the nights we requested. Staff ignorance or unwillingness?
The new or “non-shaded” campground looks like an ersatz campground set up for an impromptu gathering of some sort. It is in a former field that needs additional bush-hogging (not sure just mowing will do the job), adjacent to a busy road with nothing to buffer the traffic, a huge hole/dredge-site in the center, semi-filled with sketchy-looking, mosquito-attracting, green sludge below the orange clay slopes. God-forbid someone get too close and slide in. There are no dog disposal stations that I could find, and no garbage disposal bins.
For a city that is so proud of itself for being #1 in so many national surveys, it shocks me that our elected officials and city/county administrators have allowed this park to have become so hideous. There are very few campgrounds convenient to Huntsville and this one is a humiliation to this wonderful city. For the vast amounts of funds pouring into this city and county, it’s a true shame an already established campground, a rarity in this area, is not being well taken care of.

This is a great place to go with a family. There are many things to do. From volleyball nets to bikes fishing or just walking along the river.

We went to see the Nina and Pinta, replica ships from Columbus' voyages. Plenty of parking for all areas. Nice greenbelt for walking, with lots of benches and plenty of trash cans. Restrooms are fairly convenient, but aren't very clean.

Went to Ditto Landing on Sunday to take friends out on the boat and the restroom situation was pitiful. Neither the Men's or Women's restroom had toilet paper or paper towels. This weekend was obviously a very busy one with the holiday, but there should have been some maintenance upkeep to the restrooms during that time. It was a sad situation and reflects very poorly on the staff at Ditto Landing.

Great place to store and put the boat and jet skis and put in the water all it needs is a nice restaurant on the river
