Check out the local Izaak Walton Leagues, most of them have gun ranges.

There's one in Ankeny (http://www.ankenyikes.org/index.php/Main_Page)

You can also check out the NRA Range finder (http://www.nra.org/nralocal.aspx) and see what's around you. If all else fails head down to Scheels @ Jordan Creek and ask the guys in the gun dept. if they know of anywhere to go.

What kind of shooting are you looking to do?

I'd be willing to make a day of it. Really want to test it out!

Thank you for your response, by the way...

Talk to the boys at DAPS--the local USPSA affiliate. They'll have directions, concession information, locations of the coldest beer, and probably the biorythm of the park ranger for ya.
