Pintail Point, a piece of private property along Henrys Lake, has enrolled in Idaho Fish and Games’ Access Yes! program. Access Yes! is a program designed to improve access to private land or through private land to public land by compensating willing landowners who provide access. The Pintail Point property was enrolled by the owners for a five year period and grants public access to 296 yards of lakeshore.

No boat launch is available at the site, but it is a popular spot for anglers to hop into a float tube. No fires or overnight camping are allowed and vehicles are restricted to existing roads.

Landowner notification is not required on the Pintail Point property but Fish and Game asks users to be respectful and keep the area free from garbage and vandalism. Respecting these parcels of private land will help to ensure future use by the public and open up additional access opportunities elsewhere.
