I plan on getting an MBA later on, and as an undergrad I plan on studying business economics. Would I be better off going to a LAC, rather then a state school with a good business school?

You can do fine either way. It depends on what you want out of your undergraduate education. If you want to take classes in everything from chemistry to French to literature, you might be better off at a LAC. If you want to do undergraduate research, you might be better off at a good state school.
However, there are schools at each type that provide their students with these educational opportunities.
Another thing to consider is cost. If you plan on attending graduate school, you might not want to accumulate the debt that often comes with a LAC education. Some LAC's do offer merit aid however.
Also look at lifestyle factors such as how big of a school you want to attend.
If you need school suggestions, I would be happy to provide you with some.

The thing is when I think of a LAC I think of a private high school. School with only about 1500 students. Small classes, sports are there but not a big deal. What do you think?

Depends on the school. Some have 1500 students while others have 2500 to 3000 students. Also sports at LACs are usually D-3, but there are the Patriot League schools, for example, that are D-1 (Bucknell, Lehigh, Colgate, Lafayette, Holy Cross). For economics at LACs, look at Williams, Bates, Middlebury, Colgate, Hamilton, Macalester, Pomona, Lafayette, Trinity, Dickinson, Haverford, etc.
