In our area public docks are NOT all free - in fact few are.. most charge moorage and day fees after a few hours grace time. AND as a rafter you pay the same rate that the guy tied to the dock pays. In some cases/places you'll be tied stern-to, and closely rafted and will be charged based on LOA, not the 'dock' you used.
.. but that's just the way it is....
