One of our local beaches has been nominated by USA today as one of the top 10 freshwater beaches in the country!
Julian Bay Beach, located on Stocton Island, is only a hop, skip, and a jump away from Mission Springs Resort in Ashland. Here is what USA Today had to say about our beautiful beach:
“There are roughly 14 miles of hiking trails on Stockton Island, home of Julian Bay and its eponymous beach. The nearly half-mile track that leads to its swells features diverse foliage and culminates with lovely water vistas. The pristine beach here – don’t be surprised to see bear tracks, these residents enjoy time here, as well – is oft-cited for its “singing sand,” which makes a squeaking sound beneath the feet of its visitors as they make their way to and from the water’s edge.”
