ktmrfs summed my thoughts up quite nicely.

Quiet time means quiet, doesn't me total silence. We are generally inside by 10, but if not, the music has been turned off, we are hanging around the campfire til it goes out, maybe finishing off our beverage.

Quiet times, I do nothing that will make noise that can be heard outside of my site. But any other time, I will not play music or anything else loud enough to be heard outside off site. We talk, but move together, instead of speaking loud.
Light is harder to control the volume. Most times, if the light is on, it will travel far past the site. And depending on height, and to some extent, color that light will go a long ways. If red lights outside the door did not have the connotations it does, would be better for porch lights.
The light does not prevent crime. (Crime in CG is mostly a non issue)
Some leave lights on so they can find their camper if out after dark. Bet the same people, if lived in the country, can get by with reflectors by the driveway. Make some in a shape to mark your spot.
Worried about walking out in the dark? I mag a small motion light to the trailer frame. Lights up the ground in patio area, but is low enough not to shine past. Set in chair for a minute, light goes off. The flashlight in my hand is ready if I need.
