X10. It's not even so much about interrupting someone else's sleep. It's more about ruining their night vision at a glance at the neighbors when most folks would just rather enjoy the night sky and a warm fire. CG's might be different, but well said... "lights out at night... simple as that!"

Of course, that doesn't mean you can't give a hail and come on in for a cold one.

We go camping to get away from the lights. All lights off. BTW, have you ever tried watching a meteor shower at 2am with your neighbors campsite all lit up light a Walmart parking lot.

We have a neighbour at our seasonal campground that has a string of 200 of the old school 7 watt bulbs. They are strung from tree to tree. I don't like the lights but all the bugs in the entire camp gravitate to the light so it has a added benefit!

Amen, Brother! In most cases, leaving lights on while you sleep is about like wiring your fridge light to never turn off. Now, lighting a flag I would never complain about. But if asked, my preference in a typical CG environment would be that you take it down at night.

This is 100% true. In a point in time I'm not too proud of, I hung around one of those guys...he found it quite helpful when someone left the lights on for him. (FWIW...last I heard he had straightened up, got a job and a wife). If you really feel you have to have a light on for security, please put it on a motion sensor.

Been keeping the porch lights off, only turn on when we're outside doing something at night which is rarely and briefly.

I noticed some people goto bed pretty early 8-9pm, or at least they have no visible light in their windows.

A good camp fire is all the light we need.
