White-ish rope lights do give plenty of light ... I use them on stage as blinders, so they illuminate well.
You'd have to tape them up, or wrap them round things to manage them.
Not seen them used for camping ... though, I bet there are some out there ... or, be a pioneer!

Before we went away in August I was wondering around Costco and the wife spotted a 6m rope light , put it up in the awning using cable ties and it gave off a lot of light ,next year i'll get a better way of fixing it up .
Ps. I thought that it would be useless but I was proved wrong (again) :)

We use 2 white rope lights joined together and its so bright i have fitted it with an in line dimmer switch.
If you go ahead see if you can see the one you are going to buy lit up, some of them are low power and dont give off much light.
Also check to see if you can link multiple lights together
Do they kick out a reasonable light? without been to full on and cold? thanks in advance.
Our cub leader's bought something simular for lighting our huge marque and these are brilliant,running off a car battery topped up with a solar panel. Much better than using florsent tubes and a genny. He runs them down the centre of the marque in 1 line and that's plenty for providing enough light for evening activities with the Cubs.
Hubby says these are cool to touch, so are ideal in a smaller tent (smaller comapred to the Cub packs monster of a marque)

I managed to pick some warm white for 50p per metre, with electric cable for £2.00 with end caps at 10p I have made up a length looks good for £4.10 for a 4m light. I have enough to make another.
