13 Best Camping Lanterns for the Backcountry and Backyard


Best Camping Lantern for Groups: BioLite AlpenGlow 500

This domed camping light reminds us of those smart-speakers folks are always talking to at home, but trust us, it’s not. An impressive count of 500 lumens light up any group setting with a tall 5.4” height throwing light in every direction around it. A group of white, red, blue, and green LED bulbs work in harmony to provide numerous fun color settings of any hue, and a candle-like flicker mode brings some analog-style flavor. The rechargeable battery has a runtime of 5 to 200 hours, and an additional USB port can charge small electronic devices. The AlpenGlow’s size and brightness would make the perfect camp table centerpiece, but a built-in hook allows for hanging it above should the perfect branch present itself.
