Talega consists of buildings that provide an expeditionary support base with easy access to many training ranges aboard Camp Pendleton which include: live-fire ranges, major-landing beaches, landing zones, drop zones, combat towns and an urban training facility.
There are several Quonset huts aboard Camp Talega that are available for billeting and a few that function as office spaces. These huts give the RSU capability to provide billeting for up to 600 personnel.
Units and individual troops planning on billeting in the huts may checkout linen, blankets and pillows during working hours from the DPC/RSU Supply, Building 64461; after hours checkout must be coordinated with Logistics. If you have further questions regarding billeting for yourself or for unit, contact the DPC/RSU Logistics directly.
