Camping is one of those pastimes you can never really do enough. Camping trips get you away from the city, out in the peace and quiet, and breathing clean air away from car exhaust, pollution, and toxins. It's also a great way to relax and disconnect from a busy life.

You don't need to load up on gear to camp—all you really need is a tent, a sleeping bag, and some basic equipment: a knife, water bottles, and a lantern to see at night. Nature provides everything else!

If you're going to buy a lantern, we highly recommend LED lanterns. Not only do they last longer, but they're brighter, cheaper, and more energy-efficient than regular oil or gas lanterns.

We've done the research to find only the best LED lanterns for you to take on your camping trips. The lanterns below will give you all the light you need, no matter how many days you spend out in the wild.
