If you’ve ever done any kind of camping, then you’ve undoubtedly seen the traditional “milk jug” lanterns. They are becoming more popular as a means of lighting the way in the dark while camping. These campfires in the darkness may not seem much different from your campfire in the daytime, but they make a dramatic difference when lit by a milk jug lantern.
When you first see one of these instruments, it’s likely that you think of the milk jug type. In its most basic form, a milk jug lantern is made up of a long pole with a flint and steel type of blaze underneath. You can throw matches underneath and then hang the fire and the milk jug around your neck. The milk jug serves as a natural stop for rain water, while holding up your flaming torch for better visibility in the dark.
Once you’ve lit your milk jug, all you have to do is hang around in the camp site until the campfire is warm enough to burn out. Then you’re off for the night.
The most important thing to remember about the milk jug is that it has to be hung from a sturdy support, preferably high enough to prevent the milk jug from falling to the ground if there is a sudden rainstorm. The milk jug can become completely submerged in water if it falls or if there is a sudden spike in wind speeds.

These are perfect for taking camping, because they’re often much brighter than traditional campfires, especially when they’re lit by an electrical source.
