Grafton, Illinois

The boat ramp at Grafton, Illinois, is at the confluence of the Illinois River and Mississippi River. The islands opposite the ramp and across the Illinois River are favorite daytime perching areas for overwintering bald eagles. The far shoreline, across the Mississippi River, is St. Charles County, Missouri.
