camping lights

What lights if any does the average camper use for hanging out side around the camper at night other than the rope lights?

We have the road lights, cowboy things, snowman, cats, oriental lanterns. Go on amazon, or ebay you can find lots of designs.

Quite a few folks use these for awning lights (myself included):

My solution to awning lights

I also use a single bag Coleman propane lantern for around the picnic table or anywhere else I need a bit more light.

I love my Coleman lantern, just not when my 18 month old is around. It's too hot and I'm sure he'd end up with a branding somewhere.

We have a variety of small electric lanterns. I also have Mickey head awning lights that we hang from the awning track. And, I've got all of the parts for installing the multi-color LEDs on the awning rail itself.

I hang the Coleman's at the end of the awning roller for nighttime lighting while eating.

A little s hook does the trick.

Instead of S hooks you can use these velcro and they will roll up in your awning and not hurt it. You can get a set of 6 of them on amazon for under $15 and free shipping
