Rated 5 out of 5 by CampCampCamp They work
Purchased these lights on a whim for a little decoration before a family camping trip. They worked so well we have used them on several trips this summer including a week at scout camp. Still on the original set of AA batteries.
These lights provide a good source of indirect light under a dining canopy that are enough to read by or complete paperwork for camp. The LEDs don't seem to attract the bugs like a propane lantern.
We use them with a few clothes pins to put them on our dining fly or tent fly. A small stuff sack would be a nice touch (we use an old backpacking pillow stuff sack that works fine.
Rated 5 out of 5 by meaningmaker These Are Great!
These were given to me as a "tent-warming gift" for my new 11'x11' tent. They light up the whole space. I am going to get another set for use outside the tent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KYbowHunter Love Them!!!
O.K., so I bought them to take on my annual Hunting trip, more so to get some laughs from the fellows. I just couldn't believe these little lights made so much light, and I didn't get a single laugh, every one thought they where great, I strung them up in our tent (16' x 32') above my sleeping area and they gave me enough light to do whatever I needed to do. I think I will buy a few more sets for next year. They say 20 hours, but I used them for 8 nights and days 4-5 hours every day, and they are still working on the same set of batteries that I put in before we left! These things are GREAT!!!!!!

I bought 6 strings of lights based on other reviews. These lights were for our RV and tailgating adventures.
During our snow storm, 2/19/11, while using my electric snowblower, I blew a fuse. I thought of these lights and used them until my hubby came home (he was at a NASCAR party) and changed the fuse. These lights gave off quite a bit of light and I was glad I had not packed them away yet. I would highly recommend them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy2BACamper Cute lights!
Loved these lights! Strung them above my tent door and turned them on at night. It made it easier to find my tent in the dark after a bathroom break.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Camper36 Battery Pack
Very bright lights, great for camping. The problem is the battery pack that looks very water proof, well it's NOT. We bought two and loved them until they got water in the battery packs and stopped working. So be sure to put the pack in a seal tight baggie! Or they will end up all rusty and runied like ours.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pheadcamper Used these on our camping trip this weekend...they are so cute and bright too. But the best thing about them was that it rained all night while they were clipped up outside the tent and they still work! Will be buying some more to go with these.

These are very cute, and really bright. Look great strung along the entrance to our tent. Just takes a couple of AA batteries, and work great! Bought 2 sets, great value and lots of light.
Rated 5 out of 5 by M22addict A must have for camping.
LEDs are very bright. These are a must have for camping. We used these lights in our tent and could read by them if we wanted to. We also used them hanging on the back of our three burner Coleman stove, when we had to cook after dusk. Product is much cheaper online and was in stock at my local store.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CampingOma Fantastic!
I wanted a brighter battery-operated light for my tent so I could read more comfortably than hunched over next to my lantern and found these online. I liked the string lights idea since I use similar lights on my RV awning. My first use was at the registration table for a group campout at Big Sur. They were even visible from across the campground! Everyone was delighted with the result and charmed by the tiny Coleman lanterns. And many of the campers were hardcore backpacking campers, as well as car-campers like me. I used 5 badge holder clips that I collected from various conferences to string the lights from a tree to the registration table. Inside my tent I strung the lights from the zipper pull on my tent window to the zipper pull on the door. The light was bright enough to read comfortably without glare. I also plan to use the lights with the RV (for example when we can't run the generator after 8pm to power our other awning lights).
Rated 5 out of 5 by discoguruinoz they are biger than they look. nice lights
Rated 5 out of 5 by doesitrealymatter bought 2 of these to hang on our RV awning. Was very suprised at how much light they gave off. I'm not sure how long the battery life is yet I've only had them in use about 8 hours. They are super cute and we got lots of compliments on them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by breeze27 Mini Lanterns Light the Way
How do YOU find your tent at night? If you had these mini-Coleman lanterns hanging from the vestibule you would know you were home!
You can even paint them different colors if you wanted to be unique.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wgwood The Bees Knees
These little lanterns are surprisingly bright and oh so cool looking. I use wooden clothespins to clip the string to my tent poles or fly, depending on the weather. Also used the string on the galley hatch of my teardrop. Plenty of light for cooking.
Lots of positive comments from other campers and they wanted to know where I got 'em. I would recommend using regular alkaline batteries as they have a higher voltage than the rechargeable ones. But not to worry, as they will be last for many hours before you need to replace them.
Did I mention they are cool looking.....
Rated 5 out of 5 by gagirly These are so cute and functional
My husband had not been camping since he was 14. I told him the new rule of camping is to have your "home" decorated with lights. So these are mine. They are perfect for accenting the tent!
Rated 5 out of 5 by pooh53175 I bought 1 string of these on a whim. I thought they were too cute. I did not expect them to work all too well – no more than Christmas lights. Boy was I wrong. I strung them in our dining/kitchen canopy area of the campsite. They were brighter than out LED Coleman flashlight. I was able to do dishes off their light. While camping we were hit with a severe storm, 60-70 mph winds – we came out of the tent, they were still there, and worked that night! I wish I could post a picture to show how well they worked.

Bought these lights for a recent camping trip and was quite happy with them. Despite having them hanging inside my tent, they still provided some light outside as well. They also stood up to the beating of a rather large thunderstorm. Plan on purchasing more of them for myself as well as gifts for other happy campers. I did expect the strand to be a bit longer, but they definately did the trick.
Rated 5 out of 5 by stormywillow1 Wow
I read the reviews here and thought okay I will try a set.....WOW I was so amazed!! we had formed a square with our tents with all the doors facing each other I put these lights on the front of my tent and a few hanging off the side and there was enough light we didn't even use the lantern! They were way better than what I thought they would be!
Rated 5 out of 5 by want2gocamping What a surprise
I bought these last summer to take on a week long camping trip thinkinf the kids would get a kick out of them. My husband even made fun of me for buying them. We tried them out in the box and they seemed bright but the packaging was white so we weren't convinced. We took them with us and hubby asked "where" I wanted "those dumb lights" I bought hung. We hung them from our awning on the trailer. What a surprise!! They were actually very bright and hubby and I liked them better than the kids. He wants to buy another set which is what I am doing right now. Try them, you won't be disappointed, they are useful not just cute.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kbg781 Excellent for camping or power outage
The Coleman LED Camp Lantern String Lights are a fantastic item for camping or if your power goes out around the house. They run on 3 AA batteries and can easily last for a few days when running in the evening and at night. We put them up under the canopy while camping and they lit up the entire area. I am back to purchase another set for the tent. Absolutely love these little lights. The only thing I have to say that would be a negative is they don't come with clips of any kind, so just keep that in mind when thinking of where you will hang them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MAJ1234 Never Go Camping Without
We bought these lights to stick in our First-up Canopy (with walls) when we went camping. The canopy serves as a base kitchen, and these lights came in very handy late at night. We used Binder Clips to clip them to the Canopy frame. We used two sets of lights and it was perfect. The battery pack button served at the "light switch" and the night time lighting was perfect for what we needed it for. They were a huge camp hit at night, the "kitchen" was definately the place to be!.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kthbuatg great camping accessory
Nice bright lights. We clipped them to the awning on our horse camper (using inexpensive chip clips). They lit up the area very well. The LED lights did not seem to atract insects to our campsite like a regular lantern does.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2doglady Great Tent Lights for Young Kids
We opted to buy these lights instead of getting a tent light or use flashlights for our camping trip. They were great and very bright even in a pitch black campground. They lasted the 2 nights we were camping 10hrs each per night. Plus were still bright the next day, so I'm sure they last longer. I bought 2 sets. I attached them to the inside of our tent on both sides with closepins. Highly recommend if you want some light in your tent to see or have young kids who need a light on when they sleep. Love!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tuolumne5 Novelty Accessory Camping Item
Purchased these last year for our annual camping trip. They give off sufficient light. We attached these to our tent and they were very helpful when making a run to the restroom at night and finding our way back to our campsite. They are very easy to use. Liked them so much we purchased more for this years camping trip. Would have liked to spend less for this product. Found the best price for this item at Walmart.
Rated 5 out of 5 by newdawn111 Great lights
These were perfect for us. They lit up the whole tent and they were easy to string up in the tree.
This is the only light I brought except for a flash light..The hung easy in the tent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mountaingramma These are darling!
I was amazed at the design and attention to detail in this string of lights. They are not only cute, but work unbelievably well. What a surprise to actually get a product that is better than it's description!
Rated 5 out of 5 by moneysavershopper Great buy!
I just used the Coleman lights for the first time camping on Fathers Day weekend. I put two sets of lights on just the ends of the awning. The lights worked so good on my awning. Now my husband wants me to buy one more set, but not for needing more light to the awning because these Coleman lights give off plenty of light. My husband just thinks the awning will look better with all three sides with lights. I just remembered too, I did used these lights when we lost power about a month ago at my home and I got my Coleman lights and hung one set in the living room and one set in my daughters bedroom so she could read her book. Some might not like the thought of using batteries. I like the idea of batteries for reasons like if the power goes out at home or when i use them at camping it leave my sockets open for other stuff like the coffee machine and a radio, plus if the camp site loses electricity you still have lights at your site and not have to go try to locate your flash lights. So far I have not had to replace any of the batteries yet. Coleman Lantern string lights def worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 67FLCracker worked perfectly, bought two sets to hang under a 10 x 10 pop up and only needed to hang one set. One set lit up the entire area and ran for 4-5 hours each night, never had to chang the batteries.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MermaidatHeart Perfect for camping
Pretty bright for a string of lights. I just clipped the lights to my tent with a few plastic clothes pins and then sat back and enjoyed the lights. Not a bright spot light but stronger than one would expect. Jus the right amont of light not to brother other campers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dolphingirl1812 I love the string of coleman lights. I knew that if they were coleman, I would be happy with them.
