    Alton Marina is the ramp downtown, upstream of the Dam, it's right under the I-67 bridge.

    I saw they were digging out the ramp just below the dam, it might be usable now. The ramp is right below the dam, Missouri side, 1st left (@ gas station) coming off the bridge (from IL to MO). Go down the road till you are just below the dam, and take a left to the parking lot there. Again, I'm not 100% sure the ramp is open but they have been working on it this week, so the chances are it'll be usable.
