I would check out RV Park Reviews. You can put in the area you are interested in searching on private parks. They may list or may not list acceptance of seasonal camper but you can contact the campground/park that meets your needs.

I know when I was in Yellowstone area, I stayed at Yellowstone Valley Inn outside of Cody WY. This campground seem to offer seasonal spaces.

Check out Long Horn Ranch RV park in Dubois, WY, we spent 2 or 3 nights there in the summer of 2017, overall seemed like a nice enough park, though the people we met in the office were not the friendliest RV park people we have ever met, nothing too bad, but just a little off, they were younger and acted like they really did not want to be there.

Two hours from either Grand Teton or Yellowstone would encompass a massive area. By my calculations that would encompass an area of nearly 50,000 square miles if you assumed you could drive 100 miles in that two hours and you didn't care which of the 7 major access points to the parks you chose. That would be an area greater than the entire state of Pennsylvania. You should probably narrow down your preferences. For example, if you were two hours south of Grand Teton you could be in Star Valley, Wyoming. From there, a two hour drive would get you to the very southern boundary of Grand Teton. However you would be a minimum of 6 hours from Yellowstone and a full days drive from the Northeast quadrant of Yellowstone.
Another consideration is what exactly do you mean by a seasonal RV site. Most of the parks around Yellowstone and Grand Teton would allow you to stay all season, but would charge you close to the daily rate for the entire stay. I know several people that do that, because the cost isn't a consideration. At the next level there are parks that have monthly and seasonal rates that are located a reasonable distance from the Parks. One that comes to mind is Yellowstone's Edge in Emigrant, Montana. However, their seasonal rate is still going to be in excess of $1200.00 per month.
Cheaper, but not nearly as nice a setting is Valley View RV Park in Island Park, Idaho. Seasonal rates there go for around $800 a month. Note that staying there puts you a very long way away from Walmarts, major grocery stores, major medical facilities, and many other conveniences. It is also a park that attracts many seasonal workers who commute to West Yellowstone. That customer mix isn't for everyone. I am sure there are many other options depending upon what exactly you are looking for.

Island Park ID is on Hwy 20 just north of Rexburg ID. There is a WalMart in Rexburg.

Island Park is 53 miles north of Rexburg and the Valley View Campground is actually about 10 miles north of Island Park proper (if there was an Island Park proper). Not sure that qualifies as "Just North". Add in the extreme traffic on Highway 20 in the summer and it is not a short hop, even by western states' standards.
