We have kids.
We go to Jellystone's and the like.

If you do too, you prob know what the subject is about.
If you don't you prob think we are crazy and wondering how could we ruin our quiet outdoor peaceful setting.

Anyway, the kid packed resort campgrounds we go to often have one rig after another decked out at night with LED rope lights, colored hanging lanterns, disco light projectors and plenty of other crazy light show stuff. The kids come by on a glow stick night time hay ride and everyone is hootin' and hollarin'. Parents are sippin'on mom seltzers and dad barley soda's, so it's often quite silly.

I have a led string lights under our TT but looking to put something colorful on the awning. I found THIS for the back of rig for 4th of July but want to up it a notch with globe lights or something.

Can only find tiny Christmas light stuff on Amazon.
Anyone else have fun lights on their awning?

And I'm glad that my new RV was not anymore with those multi-colored running disco lights under the awning (that I warned my wife not to turn on, or else...)

Those extra lights have been discussed here (or some other forum) as major annoyance to other campers who are running from the city due to light pollution.

Camping world has a few lights that I think you are looking for.

Just curious, is this more of an East coast thing? I've never seen it out West. Maybe we've just been very lucky.

Again, it is at kid centric family resort campgrounds. Yogi Bear is zooming past in golf carts and there are splash zone waterpark features at the pool area.

The county and state parks around us dont do it, aside from an occasional colored rope light, and it would be out of place if it were.

Rarely does anyone go to a Jellystone unless thet have kids/grandkids.
Its like saying I want peace and quiet so I am going to Magic Kingdom.

I don't mind myself. It's just I camp on city, country and national parks/forests and mostly campers don't put out those string of lights. Maybe we'll see more of them when we go East or Midwest.

I even prefer the soft glow of those kerosene lamps when outside.

No one uses kerosene lamps anymore. lol They went out many moons ago.

I do not know if this qualifies, my string lights are small plastic beer mugs!

Since they are amber colored they do not atract too many mosquitoes or other pests.
