Ft. Defiance State Park in Cairo, IL at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers.

The view to the west shows the (closed) bridge over the Mississippi River.

The view to the north shows the bridge over the Ohio River. To the left, you can see the rest of the campground, completely empty. Note the electrical pedestals a good 7 feet above ground to keep from being submerged when the river(s) flood.
