Never Never Land trail and shelter offers outdoor backpacking in the woods of DeSoto State Park. our first trip, easy trail, moderate with backpacks, no worries about other people walking up on you

park provided 5 chairs, hatches a log book great 3 sided shelter with an awesome stone fire pit and tons of wood to be gathered. 50 feet from the plentiful running stream with cleaner water that you would think. make sure you filter it though. great place to take the kids.

Overall it was a beautiful hike, but the map doesn't make sense and it took my friend and I longer than it should have to find the trail we wanted to go on. And the map is a little deceiving and makes it seem like you're going to see Laurel falls from the Lost Falls trail, but you don't. Otherwise it was worth it and was fun and beautiful.

Overall DeSoto State Park is really nice. Some of the trails, particularly the DeSoto Scout trail needs maintenance. Several sections are somewhat overgrown which is why I rated it only 3 stars.

Kinda difficult to locate trailhead but the locals can help you find it. Pretty views of the waterfall at the end.
