Fenix’s Best Camping Lights for Summer
O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesties
Above the fruited plains!
Majestic national parks. Historic landmarks. Abundant wildlife – America is wonderful to explore and be awed by its beauty. One of the best ways to soak it all in is to camp in our plentiful campgrounds and parks. And there is no shortage of “best places to camp” lists, but this is one of our favorites for its variety: 36 Best Places to Pitch a Tent in the U.S.
Whether you enjoy s’mores over the campfire or fishing for your dinner, camping is as American as baseball and apple pie.
One of the most common enjoyments about camping is sitting around a crackling campfire at night. It’s the perfect place to tell ghost stories or simply unwind. When it’s late and the fire has died down you need to be prepared for activities in the dark:
• Settling in to your sleeping bag
• Finding that needed lost item
• (And fingers crossed you don’t have to do this), but going to the bathroom in the middle of the night
From sea to shining sea camping, here is our list of Best Camping Lights for Summer 2017:
