My step son found this out to his chagrin 6 years ago or so when he was moving a colleagues car for her and bumped a taxi. Despite it being off the highway and at a rural eating place, as the public had access it was not private land. He got done for driving without insurance.

I agree, a friend had his caravan damaged on site last year, the offender drove off without reporting it but I got his number. The police were called but said they could do nothing as the caravan was pitched on the grass, had it been on the roadway then Traffic Laws Apply, because the public have access.

So there must be a sign of some sort for you to know that parking is free for up to 4 hours? Are you sure the sign says nothing else about how to park?
