Zephyrhills is a fairly safe place to visit. The crime statistics report puts the area at about average for crime risk. The only outstanding crimes were ones of rape and assault and they were just slightly above average.
I was amazed that Zephyrhills, FL had so many registered sex offenders for so small a population. The chances that you will see one walking around the area is 1 in 100.
That is even worse than large cities like Jacksonville.

We had no problems in Zephyrhills and we were in many different parts of the city. But at night we stayed in a gated community well away from the center of town. I do not know how the place is late at night. I think if you use common precautions (lock doors, stay away from unfamiliar places late at night), then you should have a safe and happy visit as we did.
From altitude we saw nothing but RV Parks as far as the eye could see. Inhabiting these RV Parks are retired folks. We almost had 5 accidents in the parking lot of a restaurant because of all of the older folks driving huge cars trying to make the early bird special!
