“Fishing Lake 5”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

I fished Teneroc 15+ years ago and had a great experience. I went back this week (5/2) with hopes of sharing another fun fishing experience with a friend. The water has clear signs of algea and four hours of casting every lure in the arsenal produced one strike. The other four boats fishing in Lake 5 had similar results. Teneroc is a beautiful ecosystem teaming with waterfowl, alligators, snakes and other creatures one might expect to see in this part of Florida.
My personal opinion; if you're interested in enjoying a true bass fishing experience you might want to consider some other destination. There's something seriously wrong with the water quality at Teneroc. (again, my opinion)
I've fished all over the state for bass, krapie and othe panfish. I enjoy the outdoor experience and while I have NO expectations about quanties and size of fish hooked, this place "felt" different enough for me to post this review.
This fisherman has very limited time to spend on the water. Teneroc is proff posifive that precious time is better spent on Lake Okeechobee or any lake, pond or canal that is devoid of aglae. Don't waste your time at Teneroc.

“Great family outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We didn't do any fishing here but really enjoyed the hiking trails. Wildlife and flowers are abundant and the terrain is nice and flat to make for easy walking. 3.00 per person entry fee but well worth it.

“Great for Clay and Range Shooting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

We shot at their 10-11 clay stations (which were great) and then moved onto the range. The folks at Tenoroc were very friendly and knowledgeable.

“Huge Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

You pay to fish here. : ( But it's interesting. We enjoyed looking around--which they did NOT charge us for--because we didn't stay long. You stop and get a permit from the ranger.

“Was informed rudely by staff member that this park is closed on Tues, Wed and Thurs.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

After reviewing this fishing and nature park online, I decided to take my grandson (who is visiting from NY) there for an outing. Upon arriving there was a sign that said closed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday but the gate was open and I thought we could at least walk the trails. I went into the office and was greeted by a staff person (a man with a scruffy beard) who rudely (and in hearing of my grandson) told me the sign said closed and that's why the gate was closed (it wasn't or I wouldn't have been able to get in). His tone indicated I should be able to read and follow directions. Granted, I'm older and in my late 60's and perhaps I should have just turned around and left, but I was hoping to at least be able to walk a trail with my grandson who leaves for NY tomorrow. There is a way to be kind to people (especially older ones) by using a kinder decorum. And I wish the website had mentioned the days the park is closed so we wouldn't have driven the distance.
