We went here for a bbq/fishing trip and had a blast! Just about everyone caught a fish and everyone had a great time. There are many different areas to fish from and if you are there long enough, you might get to see the fish feeders go off and witness the feeding frenzy! There were a few gators that were... More

Took our 5 year old son who loves to fish to Derby lake. Although we arrived late and didn't get to catch any bass, my son got to catch 5 Bream, my husband caught a huge soft shell turtle. As we were walking up to our dock a 6 ft alligator was on the bank and dove into the water,... More

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... More

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.

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.

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.

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...

Very well managed facility. Pay attention to the regulations and have a great time. Best fishing is from john boat or kayak. Many species stocked!
