We have both propane and led. I find myself using led for the convenience of instant light and I can turn my kids loose inside the trailer without me and not worry. We use the propane outside for late dinners and anytime it will be on for a very long time. Our led is the newer cpx Coleman's with a rechargeable battery that can be removed and placed in a lantern to a fan to another lantern. Having multiple choices and easy charging for us was the way to go

We use our propane also. Only problem is when the moths get to the mantle

I like the LED. Not nearly as messy or fragile with the mantle.

Used our propane lantern for the first time this past weekend in quite some years. Forgot how hot it gets but it reminded me with this on the forearm.

Another vote for tried-and-true old stuff.

I think the most light comes from the old Coleman "white gas" lanterns, and we used two of mine to provide enough good light to play night games of Washers just last month.

Yes, you need to be careful with them. Alcohol and open gasoline flames is a little like alcohol and guns.

This is what we use. 20 some years old and rebuilt several times. Its hanging from a tree stand so out of reach of my youngest. I love this old Coleman lantern over the LED ones. We have one of those, too, for the picnic table.
