Outdoor Lights

I have a semi-permanent travel trailer down on some acreage where I often spend the weekends. Well, last weekend while sitting out near the campfire next to my trailer some wild dogs snuck up on us and we didn't see them until they were very close. I'm wanting some kind of outdoor light I can use that will be like a porch light that I can leave out there in the weather that will plug into a regular plug-in. You guys have any suggestions? I thought the work lights but I'm not sure if those are way too bright and might be uncomfortable - just not sure. What do you guys thing?

I'd go with a plug in or solar motion detector

Have you considered using low voltage Malibu lights? They are inexpensive to purchase and cheap to run and they are connected to a timer. I've been using them as landscaping lights for over 30 years and wouldn't be without them.

I probably see these more during the Christmas season, but I am envisioning one of those portable flood light fixtures that are sold with a stake to hold in the ground. They plug in, are generally intended for outdoor use, are inexpensive, and could be adapted to a variety of uses.
