It might not suit your "closer to nature" wishes, but we have stayed many times at "Rincon Country West" RV park which on Mission, just South of Ajo in the south western suburbs of Tucson.
It is a large 55+ park and has every possible amenity. I think rates are around $45 a day, but they a dozen or two sites that they call "Internet sites" which rent for half price. They are less expensive because they or on the edge of the property and border onto a private road in to a hopsuing development.
We have used the "internet sites" three times for about two weeks each visit and always found them to be fine. A large hedge & chain link fence separates them from the road and we have not been bothered by any traffic noise.
Although it is in the outskirts of Tucson, you can walk in ten minutes west across Mission Rd. to small mountains that are great for local hikes, and really nothing is that far away. Plus of course you do have the benefit of full hookups, nice pool, gymn equipt etc if that is of interest.
I appreciate it may not be what you are looking for, but thought I would mention anyway!
(PS - we used be neighbours of yours some years back when we lived in Sarnia for four years! Often use to visit Port Huron!)
