Won't be any stars to see when the neighbors start firing these things up. ūüė™

Nothing like people that go camping and bring the city with them. 

Totally agree.

One of our favorite things about off grid camping is night sky, and few neighbors. 

If we do have neighbors, we sure don't want to ruin their experience,  either.

The only good thing about the light is they will probably turn it off after a short time. Unlike those that build a stinking fire and go to bed with it still smouldering.

People really don't have much consideration for their camping neighbors.    OK... SOME people...   We've had folks using generators (that were placed behind their camper and in front of ours) right up until the 10pm cut off.   And most recently a group that set their campfire ring and chairs right next to our trailer and were yakking away until 11:30pm. (OK.. it was in NJ.. I should have expected it)   The first night when I told them we were trying to sleep they knocked it off.  The second night one guy who had a little too much to drink wanted to start a fight.  

Preference is state or NP campsites, but when we have to book a commercial campsite I look for one with sites as far apart from each other as possible (Thankful for google maps satellite view)  and always check the quiet hours rules.

This would be great to own if you lived in Transylvania.  I enjoy some bright lights at times, on my truck going down a muddy trail, security lights on a house, and seldomly when being attacked by a bear or something while camping.  Most of the time, the stars provide all the ambience I need to enjoy life.

I do happen to live in the only county in the USA that is named - Transylvania!

Halloween here is a blast for a town of only about 8,000 residents.

That's cool.  I don't believe in vampires, but if I camped there, I would bring flashlights with daylight bulbs, a bag of garlic, sharpened wooden stakes, holy water and picture of Roddy Macdowall.

@Jason Foster, just bring your camera, and a credit card. Transylvania county NC is full of beautiful waterfalls, and picturesque little towns. 

(Always garlic in the cabinet... but never sighted a vampire.  Just pleasant humans.)

Beautiful waterfalls and pleasant humans sound great.  My wife is always looking for those perfect towns like you see in a Hallmark Christmas movie.

I think Brevard could host a Hallmark movie. Little Sylva, a county away, is another little gem.

Small town Western North Carolina is worth the travel. Imo.

East Texas has a few beauty spots but can't compete with North Carolina.  We will visit that State one day.

We camped near Sylva for a week and really enjoyed the area.  We even drove to Brevard for lunch with another Oliver owner couple there. @topgun2
