Pay as You Go Internet Plan for iPad? 
My husband and I currently have a plan with Verizon. It's about $150 for our two phones and a data plan. When we asked about adding a data plan for our iPad, they told us that it will be another $30 if we do that. I came across some cards for sale in WalMart that are a more pay as you go Internet plan. I tried to ask the sales people there how it works, but no one seems to have an idea how.

Has anyone used this? How does it work? Anyone have any other suggestions on alternatives?

Some mobile phones have a feature that will allow you to make it into a personal hotspot. Check your phones to see if you got that function. If it does, then you can just use this as a hotspot for your iPad.

Why not just tap into the WiFi from the campground?

Re: Pay as You Go Internet Plan for iPad? 
Its the only "Pay as you go" plan which means you buy a bucket of data and there are no other costs until you need a new bucket. So you could take 1 year or more to use it all. For example for $45 you can purchase 4gb of use which equates to a month or 2 under moderate use. You need to purchase a mifi device in addition to the card at walmart for it to work like this.

Just how much time do you intend to spend on the Internet while you're on the road camping? If it's just minimal like trying to get directions or looking for a campground to stay or check emails, that sort of thing, I'd personally go with either harold or Matthew's advice.
