For an even better view, go across the street to the back of the Bay View Campground. You'll find the desolation trailhead for the Bay View Trail. Fill out your free wilderness permit and take the trail to the right. In 15 minutes you'll have one of the best views of Emerald Bay and Lake Tahoe that you can find. If you continue on from the overlook you will find Granite Lake, beyond you can continue to the Velmas.
This trail offers much better views and less people than the popular Eagle Lake Trail. Plus free parking.
