Bulb Options

Light bulbs play an important role in your search for the best camping lighting. Some bulbs are energy efficient, while others can last forever. See below for the differences between the most common types of bulbs.

Incandescent bulbs

This bulb type is one of the oldest types of bulbs, but it is still the most popular. It produces a warm colored light that reaches full brightness almost immediately. In addition, these bulbs provide a steady beam of light with little to no flicker visible. 

Fluorescent Lamps

As an alternative, if you prefer a multi-purpose light, durable fluorescent bulbs are one of the best electric camping light options. They provide enough light for your campsite, but they are slightly larger than other options. If you don't want to buy special lights, you may have flashlights with these bulbs in your garage.


LED lights are relatively new on the market. However, they are very durable and require very little electricity to operate. Some of the best LED camping light options keep the bugs out too!

These bulbs produce very little heat, so they are also a good choice if you are carrying small children or pets. 


There are other factors to consider when picking the best camping lights. The "right" light depends on your personal preference for these factors.


The brightness or lumen rating depends on the type of light and the bulb. In general, the best outdoor camping lights have a brightness of about 100 to 200 lumens per lantern. If you have a large group or area, you may want to look for lumens between 200 and 400 lumens.

Easy to use

Reading instructions while operating a camping light is not an ideal option. Especially if you're stuck in the middle of a dark trail. It's also a good idea to test your light before you go. Make sure you can operate the light easily and that everything is working.


A weatherproof or shockproof plastic housing is also essential when looking for the best camping lights. You never know when your light will get into an accident or a sudden rainstorm.

The next time you head out into the wilderness, make sure you have the right light source for your needs. Flashlights and headlamps are great choices for lightweight, portable lighting. If you're planning an overnight trip, a lantern is also essential.

Also, make sure you choose the right power source for your needs. If you know you can use an electrical outlet, a rechargeable light is a good choice. Otherwise, plan to bring extra batteries or fuel.
