I'll probably go the battery route this year and scope out the park better this time so i can find a good place that's shady for my tent but sunny enough for solar

If you use the led lights, a inverter and battery will last ya the entire week.... but if ya use regular christmas lights, ya get about 4 hrs before it drains it... of course we did have 20 sets wired upin the trees!! lol... i bring a extra deep cycle marine battery in addition to the deep cycle marine battery that stays on my truck... worst case scenario, i just gotta jump myself off! :)

I got my light situation taken care of. I just placed an order for a battery powered 64-LED light strand, and (3) 9ft assorted color battery operated light wires for less than $35 on amazon.

It cost money, but is totally worth it.
Marine/Deep cell battery, $70-$90 at Walmart
400 watt Power inverter $40
LED string lights.


Battery operated lights are a lot cheaper option, but will stiill get the job done.

This LED lights are pretty bright.


I have some of these and they work like a charm!
