Not a Snowbird, but a resident of the southwest. My daughter now lives in Tucson. We have found Tucson to be a very nice city. Large without getting the huge city feeling. The weather in your time frame should be very nice. I have not been to the area where this park is located and can not say anything about it. It appears to be out away from most of the city and the noise of civilization. I would suggest, if not getting anything about it from someone having stayed there, checking crime reports, etc. Maybe use one of the neighborhoods listed on the map by the resort to do the check.

Less than a mile away from my daughter's house in Tucson is a 55+ RV Resort which is gated & looks nice from the road. There are two Rincon Country RV Resorts West or East. She lives near the East one. It has been a nice area for her, she feels very safe.

Another 55+ RV Resort in Tucson: Western Way

Green Valley is near Tucson a retirement community in fact. Reviews

Small town of Wilcox maybe an hour or so from Tucson. Reviews & Others

Closer to Tucson in Benson there is a 55+ RV Resort, NO make that TWO. - Others & Reviews

Maybe these sites would help if you have not found them yourself:
Review at Cyberspaces

"This park is hard to rate. If you want peace and quiet, especially in the summer, this is the perfect place. You are away from Tucson and miss typical airplane, train, or highway traffic noise. And we had a great space next to some desert brush. The owner is a terrific guy and gives you a great orientation about places to go and things to see. His orientation was very helpful to us. But, the park does need some serious work; especially the water slides that need to be removed (since they are non-functional now). Nevertheless, I would stay here again, versus another park that is just next door, but very bare. Our rate reflects the CCUSA discount. We camped here in a Motorhome." AND "We chose this park based on the rave reviews by others, but were somewhat disappointed. It appears that it is the friendly owners and guests as well as the activities that make this such a popular place to spend the Winter. The park would benefit greatly by some demolition of the old water park buildings, more modern facilities and cable TV. Many of the sites are just unappealing bare gravel, but since most of the snowbirds had left, we were able to park in a very pleasant spot with lovely desert vegetation all around. Wi-fi reception was spotty and TV reception poor. We would probably try to find a park closer to the city if traveling through here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel." RV Park Reviews

Look at Justins right next to Desert trails. Justin owned Desert trails at one time. It is new & has a lot more room. Same price.
