Satellite photos just show buildings, not assets. To see an asset, loitering would be required. Look at it this way...the base can be seen from Tikaboo and a few other spots, but to date, nobody has produced a photograph of any unknown aircraft. Even at the TTR, where observation is quite a bit easier than Groom Lake, no photograph of a test article has been produced. The bases know when they are being watched and work around the sightseers.
Incidentally, no real (as opposed to claimed) base worker says there is anything underground at Groom Lake. There is no need for underground facilities. When you are that remote, a building provides plenty of cover. Even the scoot and hide shelters the base uses aren't much of a shelter. But good enough to prevent a satellite from seeing anything.
