Last I heard it was tentatively set at $7 per day. That might have changed a bit since the cost of construction, equipment, and materials has also gone up. But if it has, it's not by much. Between donations and numerous grants they have received, the project is well funded.

the golf cart is great and they have several spotting scopes as well as sand bags and Y stands (cannot think of the word) for supporting rifles.

That's a good looking range. What's the elevation like in relation to the river? Is there any fear of flooding out there?

Good question, but the river is quite a few feet lower, maybe 100' lower in elevation.
