Camping can be a complete bonding experience if you plan to go out with your family or friends; if you decide to set on the adventure alone, you can bond and get in touch with your own self, which is no less of an experience either. If you opt for the former, a Canvas Wall Tent might be perfect for you. A wall tent, also known as a hunting, safari, or outfitter tent, is perfect for a family looking for a little more space and headroom.
A wide range of nighttime activities can be planned and executed to make the most out of the trip. However, it is important to have foolproof arrangements for lighting up your wall tent so you can make the most out of your camping trip. Here at White Duck, we have compiled a list of practical and creative ideas to light up your wall tent! Do check these out.
Battery Powered Lanterns
Propane lanterns are a huge fire hazard and a bad idea when it comes to tent lighting. However, battery-powered lanterns can be easily found now, and they are a safe alternative to old-fashioned gas lanterns.
A battery powered lantern can last anywhere from 12 to 60 hours depending on the kind you get and gives off enough light for you to comfortably illuminate your tent, and even read if you want. This is the perfect option for you if you do not have a 4 wheel drive or generator to power up your lighting with.
LED Strip Lighting
LED strip lights consist of LED lights arranged in a row within a transparent, waterproof tube. They are lightweight, waterproof, and easy to install. You can drape them around literally any surface, and they do not pose a fire or electrocution hazard due to the small amount of power they use. LED strip lights are one of the most affordable and creative ways to light up your wall tent! If you do not have access to 12V power or a generator, you can easily get battery powered LED strip lights as well.
Another alternative to LED strip lights, fairy lights aren’t just affordable and easy to install, they also help you create the perfect mood lighting for your wall tent! You can hang them in loops from your tent ceiling or wall, and use a few strings to create the amount of lighting you need. Battery powered fairy lights are also very easily available if you do not have a generator.
Get some lightweight magnetic lights to attach to the metal poles of your wall tent when you go out camping next time. The magnetic lights stick easily to any metallic surface, and just a few of these can light up your tent enough for you to dress up, play games, or even read.
Candle lanterns are an affordable and easy way to not just light up the inside of your wall tent, but to keep warm in chilly weather as well. You can suspend the candle lanterns from the ceiling. One candle lantern provides enough light for one person to easily read in. Moreover, they are completely safe!
If you plan to spend a number of days out in the wild camping, solar lighting is a very good option to you. All you have to do is charge them fully during the day, and they will last you all night. Some lights can last you a number of nights as well on a single charge.
Windup lights aren’t just good for emergencies; they can help you light up the inside of your wall tent as well! Take your windup light to camp with you next time you go. It provides a good amount of light and one windup light can illuminate one medium-sized tent pretty well. If you want to go fancier, there are windup lights that can help you charge your phone too, so you don’t have to completely cut yourself off from the outside world when you are out camping.
Glow sticks are a funky way to light up your wall tent, especially if you’re in a festive mood or are taking kids along. A number of colorful glow sticks can provide enough light to carry out normal activities within the wall tent, and they look really festive too!
Yes! You can actually use the old fashioned way and stock up on batteries when you go camping (at places like Salmon River Campground) to use your flashlights to light up your camp. They can be suspended from the tent poles or ceiling, or simply placed in a corner. To illuminate your entire tent, you can prop it up in the middle of the tent with the light beam facing the ceiling, and voila! Affordable and simple, flashlights are easily portable and battery powered which makes them useful for any nighttime outdoor activities you may be planning as well.
These were some of the ways you can light up your wall tent when you go out camping. We hope this will help you make the most out of your experience. Happy camping!
