“Great place to teach a child to fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

My 5 year old son has been wanting to go fishing. I did not want to take him some place he was going to get bored, or have a bad time . This was his first trip I wanted it to be a good one.
Tenoroc was the perfect place. It was very safe , lots of fishing pavilions , boardwalks.... There were restrooms,a screened picnic shelter . Limited amount of people per pond, everyone is signed in and gets a badge for that lake.

Best of all he ( we) caught fish. We had a pretty steady stream of hook ups . It was a good time had by all. Even mommy liked it !

“Florida nature at it's best - bobcat, huge alligators...!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2010

My boyfriend LOVES bass fishing so we drove to Tenoroc yesterday afternoon. It is an area where there used to be phosphate mining (pits) that have turned into lakes and has hiking trails, etc. We got off to a really late start, so very little time for fishing, although we hear that the bass fishing is great. We weren't there long enough but some guys we ran into said they caught a lot. Within the first 5 minutes of being there, we saw a bobcat! We went to the picnic area which has a lake to fish on and spotted 3 alligators! One was about 12 feet, another was about 10 feet and the third was about 5 feet, all sunning themselves on the shore across the lake. We also saw a big wild boar crossing a dirt path. If you love to see animals and be surrounded by nature, this peaceful place is just that. They limit the amount of people who can fish on each lake, so as to avoid over-crowding and over-fishing. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS! We will definitely be back!!
