Security is no different in a campground vs. home.
I'm a lights off kind of guy. I have the same feeling- if it's dark and late and I need to go out, I'll flip a light on before heading out. But, I've also camped in plenty of campgrounds that had street lights on their roadways and near the bathhouses. They don't go off. (Heck, in Ocean City- the light pole was literally on my site and it was bright
When my mother-in-law stayed in our camper, she was aghast at the idea of all lights out at night. She opted to leave the patio light on (yellow light). With the awning deployed, I'd be surprised if even the closest neighbor had much light spillage out of our site.
I'm always surprised is the level of angst that lights raise. I caught heck for talking about using a fuse to keep my running lights on in the evenings when we were at/away from our site. You would have thought I talked about humping the neighbor's dog with the level of vim received for that one.
Lights on/lights off- do what makes you happy.
